Walled Unwalled

Lawrence Abu Hamdan
documental

Synopsis

The artist Lawrence Abu Hamdam creates a sound essay on the very timely concept of the wall. With ties to research by the Forensic Architecture group, his empirical and artistic demonstrations are staged in order to research these imposed borders, from their violence to their permeability, and reflect on human rights.
