For the Unsettled World to Come

A window installation organized by Bilna'es
October 20 - November 30, 2021

This project gathers illustrations and artworks made in the summer of 2021, during a period of mass rebellion in Palestine and abroad. Produced as twenty-three posters, these works call to globalize the intifada, making the Palestinian uprising one for all people struggling against entangled systems of oppression and dispossession.

Mobilizing networks of solidarity and resistance, these artworks have been shared, hashtagged, and circulated globally in the fight against oppression and colonialism. The artists included are from Palestine and beyond, with each contribution amplifying the Palestinian resistance to displacement and the ongoing struggles within occupied and divided lands.
