May 7, 2023 until March 10, 2024
This exhibition has been organised in cooperation with the Jewish Museum of Amsterdam. The exhibition at the Jewish Museum Amsterdam was initiated by Victor Levie and developed in collaboration with Iris Hassid.
The exhibition “A Place of Our Own” focuses on the lives of four young Palestinian women. They are Israeli citizens, living and studying in Tel Aviv, and setting out from there on their professional lives, in Israel and elsewhere. Israeli photographer Iris Hassid (b. 1965) began photographing them in 2014 and talking to them about their ambitions, friendships, families, and political-social involvement.
The photographs on display, films, and quotes from many conversations show the lives of these young women, since leaving their Arab towns and villages to go to university in Tel Aviv. And they reflect the complexities of an existence as a Palestinian woman in Tel Aviv and as a woman with ambitions in Israeli society.
