In “Samira—A Story from the Christian Palestinian Archive” Guez followed the story of one woman and her family as an entry point into the history of the Christian Palestinian diaspora. Through an installation of archival materials, videos, and “scanograms”—the artist’s name for name for his technique of scanning original documents in many layers in order to produce new high-resolution digital prints—Guez documented important events in Samira’s life before and after the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. “Samira” is one story from the Christian Palestinian Archive (CPA), a growing collection of scans of archival documents documenting the personal histories of the Christian Palestinian community worldwide, which Guez founded in 2009. An open call will be held in New York throughout the course of the project for members of the local Christian Palestinian community to submit photographs and materials for the archive. This project was curated by Chelsea Haines, Presidential Research Fellow, The Center for the Humanities.
