"The Art of Re-production": Bani Abidi in Palestine, a conversation with Yazid Anani.

Given that the art of re-production is one of the conceptual interventions of this current exhibit at BZU Museum, this workshop shall cover the theoretical, aesthetic and practical implications involved in "re-production." We shall attend to the defiance and refusal written into the exhibition's conceptual note and ask: what about re-production is refusal? Since the material work of re-producing sheds light on the contradictions embedded in the act, questions of refusal arise along with the potential limitations in re-presentation. This workshop shall begin with this exhibition and be ensconced in the space of BZU Museum, but it shall also not remain defined by boundaries of space that the exhibit asks us to challenge.
