Subjective Atlas of Palestine

"What country appeals more to the imagination than Palestine?", documented so extensively in the press.

One of a series also including Mexico and Hungary, the Subjective Atlas of Palestine tells a story of Palestine not often seen in conventional atlases or in the Western media. Instead this collection of intimate and subjective images of life in Palestine, curated by Dutch designer Annelys de Vet, lets Palestinian artists, photographers and designers present their country as they see it.

The drawings, photographs, maps and narratives that fill its pages catalogue the most everyday experiences from preparing chickpeas to a manual on water pipe smoking, and offers an intriguing strategy of subverting dominant mapping narratives and finding new modes of expression.
