The Potential Politics of Urban Artist-Run Residencies (UARRs) as Public Art in East Jerusalem
What role do art and artists assume in a given social, cultural and political context? Dr. Zoe Bray, visiting fellow at the European Forum of the Hebrew University, has been asking this question in Jerusalem (Israel-Palestine). In 2017, through an invitation to participate in the Roundtable Residency Research East Jerusalem led by Anat Litwin, she has been investigating the possibility of developing Litwin’s idea of urban artist-run residencies (UARRs) in the specific context of East Jerusalem, characterized by continuing nationalist, ethnic and religious clashes.
