UOT interviews Alexandra Handal (March 05, 2015) - Dream Homes, Property Consultants

Dream Homes, Property Consultants is a Web documentary that aims at uncovering Palestinian stories of displacement, dispossession and cultural cleansing.

At first glance, the web project seems to be just another website for a real estate agency, but upon closer examination the site actually documents houses that were taken away from their Palestinian inhabitants during the Nakba, also known as the catastrophe that resulted in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine to create current day Israel. 700 000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes during the Nakba and many of their houses were given away to the new settlers.

To learn more about this interesting new project we talked to the Palestinian artist behind it, Alexandra Hendal.

This interview was conducted by Katherine Garven and Sawssan Kaddoura
