Larissa Sansour Participates in the Shubbak Festival, London

Larissa Sansour will take part in this year's edition of the Shubbak Festival, London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture. 


The artist will be part of a panel discussion titled Displaced History at the British Museum on 2 July from 3.35 - 5.15 PM. As heritage is threatened and contested, four artists and curators look at important historical and cultural narratives under threat. The discussion is a part of the festival's all-day symposium Survival of the Artist


Sansour wil also participate in the Imagined Future Shorts  section of the festival's comprehensive programme, which features her 2012 film Nation Estate and a Q&A with the artist held at the Barbican Centre on 4 July at 6.30 PM. In Nation Estate the multi-disciplinary artist offers a dystopian, humorous and vertical solution to Palestinian statehood: one colossal skyscraper housing the entire Palestinian population, now finally living the high life.
