International artists and prominent writers have responded to the texts with newly commissioned work, including paintings by Francis Alÿs, drawings by Paul Noble and a photography-based project by Mark Titchner. Guy Mannes-Abbott is in conversation with Samar Martha, Director of ArtSchool Palestine*
*Due to unforeseen circumstances Samar Martha is no longer able to attend and instead Guy Mannes-Abbot is in conversation with Nancy Evans, Director of Learning & Participation, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
