The landscape of Palestine and its representation is invariably linked with
its identity, which yields numerous transformations and incongruities. To
create a unified teleological narrative out of the representations of Palestinian
identity and place reveals itself from the outset as an attempt to
engage with the experience of fragmentation, loss and estrangement. As
Stuart Hall suggests, ‘Such images offer a way of imposing an imaginary
coherence on the experience of dispersal and fragmentation which is the
history of all enforced diasporas’. What this article intends to explore is
the different representations of identity and place by Palestinian artists
who create their work from various positions and experiences.
