‘Welcome Home’ is the first exhibition to take place at the new studio of Disarming Design From Palestine. It takes the domestic reality as a context to address issues that define the Palestinian plight and the reality of living under occupation. In a Ramallah appartment the products developed in the past five years, are displayed in their intended settings. Together they present sets of stories about current Palestinian fragmented identity, while examining the potential of creative practices as forms of resistance, hence contributing to social innovation and alternative forms of circular economies.
This exhibition and shop have been organized on the occasion of the 3rd Qalandia International and the launch of our new website. All products in the exhbition are developed in the context of Disarming Design, all furniture has been recycled or upcycled. The show also includes prototypes of the createshop that was organized this summer in collaboration with the Ramallah Municipality.
