Symposium: Genealogy of Erasure
Houses beyond the Hyphen
14/05/2016

The symposium offered an extensive discussion of the issues addressed by the project, with emphasis on the erasure of official, public, cultural and private lives of the pre-1948 Palestinian city – and Jaffa in particular – by presenting and discussing a range of other projects that expose the urban history of the now hyphenated city.
