A conversation between Gili Merin and Malkit Shoshan about cartography, territorial violence, atlases and books.
The curator Malkit Shoshan specializes in the architecture of conflict, and for “Blue,” she focuses on the structures created by the United Nations at Camp Castor in Gao, Mali. “Blue” indicates, on the one hand, the blue helmets of the peacekeeping mission, and on the other, the “blue men” of the Tuareg, in whose region the mission is situated. Shoshan suggests the military camp itself as a permeable cultural location rather than a fortress, and one that brings with it the possibility of positive change.”

Village documents a unique encounter between two creative communities: a village of forcibly displaced people on the one hand, and a group of artists, designers and architects on the other. The context is the village of Ein Hawd, an (until recently) ‘unrecognised’ Palestinian village in Israel. It lies within viewing distance of the inhabitants’ former village, now an Israeli artist community: Ein Hod, founded by the Dada artist, Marcel Janco.
We are currently looking for architecture, or urban design interns with excellent research and graphic skills, to help us realizing an exciting project about the architecture and landscape of peacekeeping missions.
A new version of ZOO, or the letter Z, just after Zionism will be exhibited at the Experimenta in Lisbon, from 09 NOV, 2013 until 22 DEC, 2013.
The current events around Pillar of Cloud brings us back to ZOO.
