In conjunction with “False Flags” at Pelican Bomb Gallery X, curator Noah Simblist leads a panel discussion about contemporary notions of nationalism and the representation of imagined communities in the Middle East and the Americas. Panelists include Ruti Sela and Maayan Amir from the Tel Aviv-based Exterritory Project, an interdisciplinary initiative that encourages both the theoretical and practical exploration of ideas concerning extraterritoriality, and Alhena Katsof and Nir Shauloff from Public Movement, a performative research body based in Tel Aviv, which investigates and stages political actions in public spaces. Both Exterritory Project and Public Movement have work on view in “False Flags” at X. The artists are joined by Scott Sullivan (Louisiana State University Law Center) and Tabitha Mustafa (New Orleans Palestinian Solidarity Committee).

This event is free and open to the public. The talk takes place in the Stone Auditorium, Room 210, in the Woldenberg Art Center.
