Haneen Adi:
What was the impression of going there and meeting it(Palestine) in the physical vs. how it lives in your imagination?


Lina Meruane

My family arrived in Chile at the beginning of the 20th century so they assimilated and adapted and my father and my aunts never learned arabic. So I did not learn Arabic. My interest in Palestine started a little bit later in my life when I was already living in New York. I sort of almost by chance got to go to Palestine. What I expected to feel was a sort of emotional connection to the place, almost like a physical connection to the place, like something would come up in my mind, some sort of feeling when I saw the family still living there, I would feel some sort of warming up to the family. I didn't really feel that and I was surprised, but at same time I think there is something sort of romanticized about the idea of return.

For me, the interesting and important part was that I immediately connected politically to the situation of abuse. I think it’s because I also lived under dictatorship in Chile. I could recognize the signs of oppression, abuse, fear and I immediately connected and ‘became’ Palestinian through that experience. Through the experience of present-day Palestine, connected to the historical occurrences in the place.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM:

Palestine, IN-BETWEEN



LIFTA x CPS Present: ‘Palestine, IN-BETWEEN’, a semester-long program that explores contemporary Palestinian cultures and yearnings across generations in Palestine and its diaspora. Through media including live panels, original videos, podcasts, essays, film screenings, and social media campaigns, ‘Palestine, IN-BETWEEN,’ spotlights the untold and unfamiliar. It gives precedent to the under-celebrated; the agents of design who draft and re-draft blueprints for present-day liberation. ‘Palestine, IN-BETWEEN’ is an ode to the powers of self-freedom and agency that breathes life into all beings, unbound from restrictions imposed by states and systems. Its content helps to lay the foundation for desired futures by rejecting the projections of a homogenous Palestinian experience and deconstructing the often flattened Palestinian identity.

This program is presented by CPS + LIFTA with Lena Mansour and Cher Asad.

Palestine IN-BETWEEN is co-sponsored by The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities and the Center for Archaeology.
