Founded in 2018, LIFTA is a space led by the imagination. Prioritizing collaboration and human-centric processes, LIFTA develops projects across different mediums including publications, exhibitions, and film. Crafted by people of the region, our inaugural project is a book centered upon the theme of Future Palestine. Volume I features work from award-winning artists, poets, curators, researchers and writers from Palestine and its diaspora. The 2nd volume will take the format of a long term archival initiative based in CDMX exploring Diasporic communities from the Arab world.
The theme of Future Palestine is a step away from the past and present, from the limitations of current affairs, memory and rhetoric — a step towards intangible possibilities and impossibilities.
It examines all the things that bind Palestine to Palestinians: time, land, exile, ideas of return, and for those that remained; ideals of exit, nationalism and things lost, found and held onto. This departure brings forth the question: how much of history, reality and experience can we shed in the realm of the imaginary?
