Mohamed Abusal:

Born in Gaza in 1976. Although a graduate in finance and management, he retrained as an artist in 2000 and attended many workshops and has undertaken much research to develop and refine his artistic skills. Since 2000, he has worked at a prolific rate producing daring and innovative work which has attracted great publicity and garnered much critical acclaim. Projects have included Metro in Gaza (2012) and Shambar (2013) – both of which are great concepts comprising installations, designs and photographs -that deal with the reality in besieged Gaza and envisioning a brighter future – a future that is not only plausible but a fundamental human right. Painting remains his first love and it is where he retreats to recharge and create beautiful work. Mohammed Abusal has exhibited extensively around the world over the last decade, notably in France, where he has held several solo exhibitions, in addition to the US, UK, Australia, and Dubai. In 2005 he was awarded the Charles Aspry Prize for Contemporary Art.

Disarming design from Palestine (DDFP) 

An independent non-profit platform resisting the dehumanisation of Palestinians. We are based in Belgium and perform as a design label that fosters thought-provoking and disarming designs from Palestine. We focus on artisanal products created in conscious and integrated ways, which speak of the reality they are manufactured in. With our label we center Palestinian voices and utilise our networks to amplify them. Often rooted in a story or incident encountered in day-to-day life across occupied Palestine, the designs perform as cultural objects and conversation starters in homes, exhibitions, symposia, academia, media and other places of learning. How can design contribute to international solidarity and justice for the Palestinian struggle for liberation and self-determination?
