Public Lecture, Panel Discussion and Book Signing with Miki Kratsman about the book “The Resolution of the Suspect” written in collaboration with professor Ariella Azoulay
Location : Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford St., Cambridge, MA 0213
Tuesday, May 3, 6:00pm
Distinguished Argentine-Israeli photographer Miki Kratsman has worked in the Palestinian Occupied Territories for over three decades, documenting the evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including its daily effect on the Palestinian population. In Kratsman’s view, the accumulated documentation of this difficult daily routine is more significant—and more disquieting—than single images of dramatic events. Kratsman will discuss his new book, The Resolution of the Suspect(Peabody Museum Press), and his approach to making visual the ways in which the shadow of death hovers, sometimes literally, over his Palestinian subjects.
Free and open to the public. Free event parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
