Goethe Institute grant holder Ala Younis (Amman) remains a guest of Living Archive until the end of July. In June, she is presenting a piece from her project "Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events" (2011). In her lecture "Gardening a pitiless mountain dreamed of faraway with its owner only a passing shadow,” Oraib Toukan takes the idea of representation of a Palestinian revolution through neighboring landscapes as her starting point. The talk is structured by a three-part scene from Mustafa Abu Ali's film "They Do Not Exist" (1974) in which Bach's Violin Concerto in E major provides the backdrop to the roar of war planes, and also features scenes from the films of Abdallah Kawash, Masao Adachi and Jean-Luc Godard as well as other productions shot in Jordan. www.arsenal-berlin.de/living-archive
