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.
