About the Communist Museum // August 2018


The Communist Museum of Palestine is an idea for a museum that houses its collection inside the homes of Palestinians. It names an effort to create a decolonizing and deterritorializing museum, one which emerges like grass between the concrete slabs and walls which have been planned, designed and crudely placed atop our imaginary to stifle and contain it. Thus, it is a proposal for restoring the indeterminacy and potency of art both in its capacity to alter the way we see the world and in its ability to interrogate life as it is lived today. It uses as its main resource, the communism that is already there, among us. And as a communist museum, the struggles for emancipation, equality through difference, solidarity, and justice are not themes among others, but its raison d’être.
