Subjective Atlas of Palestine
010 Publishers, 2007

This ‘Subjective Atlas’ is the outcome of a week-long workshop held in April 2007, attended by over 20 Palestinian designers, artists, photographers, architects and students at the International Academy of Art in Ramallah. The intention was to produce an atlas that was much more than a set of maps of Palestine, but rather a collection of visual and textual ‘mappings’ of the lived reality of Palestine – social, cultural, geographical and political. The subject matter of the Atlas reflects this eclectic and precarious lived reality, covering topics as apparently incongruous as traditional embroidery, chickpeas, print media, road signs, natural landscapes, currency and national flags.
