“Walls, Ground, Atmospheres, and Bodies in Palestine”

Walls, Atmospheres, Arch.“Walls, Ground, Atmospheres, and Bodies in Palestine,” a conversation recorded with Maryam Monalisa Gharavi in Ramallah for Archipelago: “This conversation with Maryam Monalisa Gharavi can be divided into three chapters, all corresponding to one physical aspects of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank in relation to Palestinian bodies. We begins with the physicality of the wall and compare its securitarian spectacularity with the ones built at the edges of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas in the last decade. We then address the question of the ground and its ability to shake our convictions when no longer providing the resistance to the entropy named gravity, like during the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Finally, we talk about the colonized atmosphere on the traces of Frantz Fanon, and the difficulty one finds in breathing within it.”
