The Letter From 20 to 27 May 2022


Twice a year, East XXI appeals to its readers to be able to continue to exist free of charge and in complete independence. The next crowdfunding campaign will start next Monday, May 30.

The Gaza Cloud Museum

➞ Monday, May 30, 2022, at 7 p.m.
Auditorium of the Cité internationale des arts in Paris

Currently in residence at the Cité internationale des arts, the Hawaf collective (Mohamed Bourouissa, Salman Nawati, Mohamed Abusal and Sondos Al-Nakhala) presents its project “ Sahab, the Cloud Museum of Gaza »: for Gaza, a territory under embargo and without a museum of contemporary art, the Hawaf collective imagines a museum of possibilities that stimulates the imagination and a vision of the future. A museum accessible on the clouds (cloud) through a digital platform that will shape the history and future of Gaza. The cloud is a gateway to the outside world, beyond the marginalization of this territory. Based on virtual reality technology, the museum gives everyone access to Gaza’s heritage, identity and culture.
