The artist duo Basel Abbas (Cyprus, 1983) and Ruanne Abou-Rahme (United States, 1983) grew up in Ramallah, a Palestinian city in the West Bank. Their work addresses the permanent political and social turmoil in their homeland. Using video, texts, archive material, objects, song and performance, they create poignant, multi-sensory installations. Specifically for the exhibition The Fortified City, they made a new video installation consisting of various layers that lets the visitor feel how walls and borders drastically affect a country, a people, and the individual psyche.
