Jerusalem Beyond Borders: Deconstructing the Political from the Functional
Nov 28, 2017 - 6:00 p.m.
Columbia Alumni Center, 622 West 113th Street New York, NY 10025, Schapiro Room
Please join us for a conversation with Nizar Farsakh, former general director of the PLO Delegation in Washington, D.C. and Middle East expert, and Arch. Karen Lee Bar-Sinai, Cofounder and Design Director at SAYA/Design for Change – an organization which envisions and designs for peace through “resolution planning.”
The two will discuss the complex issue of sovereignty alongside politics, history, religion, and everyday life that any future plan for Jerusalem will have to navigate. The speakers will discuss the often overlooked dichotomy between separation and connection in the city and will offer a new way to look at Jerusalem, beyond its borders, by differentiating between to the political and the functional.
The event is sponsored by AC4.
