40 Days, film screening and artist talk with Dor Guez
40 Days documents the impact of the 1948 war on Lod, a town between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and its Christian-Palestinian population. The images originate from Guez’s ongoing work maintaining the first Christian-Palestinian Archive, a growing collection of archival documents pertaining to the Palestinians who were dispersed from-and those who remained in-Israel after the 1948 War.

Dor Guez was born in 1980 in Jerusalem. He is a multidisciplinary artist whose installations combine diverse modes of video and photographic practices. Guez is a lecturer in the History and Theory Department at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, and a researcher of archives affiliated with Tel Aviv University. In 2009 he established the first archive devoted to the Christian-Palestinian minority of the Middle East. Guez’s solo exhibitions include Georgiopolis at the Petach Tikva Museum of Art; The Monayer Family at the Jewish Museum, New York; Al-Lydd at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; The Nation’s Groves at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and Carlier Gebauer Gallery, Berlin; Against The Grain at Beursschouwburg Art Center, Brussels; SABIR at Dvir Gallery, Tel Aviv, 100 Steps to the Mediterranean at The Rose Art Museum, Boston, and 40 DAYS at Artpace, TX.
