/si:n/ video art and performance festival


Reclaiming the Public Space

The 4th edition of /si:n/ festival will take place from July 7 to 9 in Palestine.

It aims to ambush spectators wherever they are in urban spaces. Potential spectators might be driving by, out to enjoy the nights of Ramadan; others might stop at the sleepless shop windows and electronic billboards and not find advertisements but videos, installations and artworks instead. The streets will embrace artists as they express their emotions and interpret their ideas in contemporary performances.

This year, /si:n/ extends its content out to the public in cities and villages: to Ramallah, Jaba’, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Gaza. It reaches out to a wide range of Palestinians through an urban display of videos and performances, on the streets and in the unclaimed corners of public space, where the holy month of Ramadan invites people to reclaim the cool summer nights.

11 cultural organisations gathered to design and produce the festival :

- in Ramallah : A.M. Qattan Foundation, Khalil Sakakini Cultural Centre, French-German Cultural Center, Riwaq, International Academy of Arts, Ramallah Municipality

- in Jerusalem : Palestinian Art Court-Al Hoash, Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Arts,

- in Gaza : Eltiqa Group for Contemporary Art, Windows from Gaza for Contemporary
