New York: Adila Laidi-Hanieh at Cabinet

Cultural critic Adila Laidi-Hanieh will speak about “The Palestinian Paradox: Post-Modern Globalized Cultural Practices under Colonialism” on Friday, 6 February, 7 pm – 9 pm at Cabinet, 300 Nevins St., Brooklyn. Here’s the blurb:

The talk will draw from her recent book “Palestine: We Lack for Nothing Here” (Palestine rien ne nous manque ici) to discuss the paradoxical vitality of Palestinian culture—literature, visual arts, film, music—its “normalization,” and unprecedented access to the international art circuit despite its predominantly political content. Laidi-Hanieh will conceptualize these practices as well as the related paradigms informing them, such as colonialism, post-colonialism and Arab postmodernity.
