Through lively interrogation of critical texts on local, regional and international exhibitions, participants decode and unravel the strategies at work in the production of meaning around art. Sessions discuss topics such as the mythification of the artist, postcolonialism and the question of identity, and explore issues including how practitioners frame their practice, multiculturalism, and the relationship between artists and institutions. All reading material is provided.

We will discuss how embroidery changes after 1948 in style and significance up to present day. We will also look at how artists and designers interpret and repurpose Palestinian embroidery in their work.
