24 May 2014 - 26 July 2014

Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour presents an ironic take on the political situation in Israel and Palestine. In this short sci-fi film, entitled Nation Estate, Sansour offers a vertical solution to Palestinian statehood. Housed in one colossal skyscraper, the whole Palestinian population is finally living the high life.

This film has been acquired recently as part of a joint collecting initiative with IWM (Imperial War Museum) to collect art that reflects on the conflict in Israel and Palestine. The collection has been funded by the Art Fund Renew scheme with funding for Nation Estate made available through the Contemporary Art Society Acquisitions Scheme.
