Nation Estate

 
In einer nicht näher definierten Zukunft wird die gesamte palästinensische Bevölkerung in einem kolossalen Wolkenkratzer untergebracht. Im sterilen Inneren bleibt nur der sehnsüchtige Blick durchs Glas auf die frühere Heimat. In der stilisierten Form des Science-Fiction-Genres und mit genauem Blick für Details inszeniert Nation Estate eine vertikale Lösung für die palästinensische Eigenstaatlichkeit. (Lotte Schreiber)

In an undefined future, the entire Palestinian population is housed in a colossal skyscraper. All that remains in the sterile interior is a wishful view of the former homeland. In the stylized form of the science fiction genre and with a precise sense of detail, Nation Estate stages a vertical solution for the independent state of Palestine. (Lotte Schreiber)
