White Oil, excavations and the disappearance of the West Bank

  • Judy Price

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The research project considers how the processes of artistic production and their modes of reception can transform our understanding of the geopolitical and spatial relations of the Occupied Palestinian Territories. It does this through a study of the extraction and exploitation of stone from the quarries in the Occupied Palestinian Territories of the West Bank. It uses film to speak directly about the intimate lived experiences of people caught up in the neocolonial struggles of this region, the technologies of industrial production, the reproduction of everyday life and the production of the moving image.
