quote: An associate professor of Art History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Ankori has spent much of the past 20 years interviewing Palestinian artists with the intention of understanding the meaning and significance of their work.
After discovering their art had been largely ignored by the West, she became persuaded to amalgamate her research and is now publishing an English-language book devoted entirely to Palestinian art.
Her book dispels a commonly accepted myth that there was no art in Palestine prior to the creation of Israel and subsequently relays the significance of the 1948 Nakba (Catastrophe) on the development of the milieu.
