Otherwise Occupied is an exhibition of Palestinian artists organized by al Hoash as part of the Venice Biennale 2013. Curated by Bruce Ferguson and Rawan Sharaf, the exhibition features two internationally renowned Palestinian artists: Bashir Makhoul and Aissa Deebi, who were born inside the 1948 borders and emigrated to become citizens of other states operating in a globalised art world. They still think of themselves as Palestinians and are in search of new ways to imagine the nation from a distance.
Palestine, long under occupation, has been constructed by the imaginary of what are widely fragmented communities across the world.
