Presentation of the exhibition ‘Stitching as a rights narrative’ by curator Soe Verclyte and reception. Traumatic experiences are often diffcult to express in verbal language, especially in the context of conflict and displacement. Disruptive life courses may urge towards expression, while at the same time defy expression in (merely) verbal language. In Shatila, a refugee camp in the South of Beirut, the language of embroidery has been present since its establishment in 1949 to host Palestinian refugees. It is a gendered activity and daily practice rooted in the rich textile in the region. The outbreak of the civil war in neighboring Syria and the influx of new refugees has generated a revival of embroidery practices in the camp. This cultural heritage has several, often new, functions such as bringing to bear visual stories about lived experiences.... The exhibition is part of the interdisciplinary research ‘On Migrating Heritage'... Please register before 30/11.
