Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory (FAST) (The Netherlands/USA, est.2005) with contributions by Amir Qudaih (Palestinian, b.1993) and the Qudaih family (Palestinians), Yael Berda (Israeli, b.1976), Sandra Kassenaar (Dutch, b.1982), and Malkit Shoshan (Israeli/ Dutch, b.1976)



For nearly a century, fluctuations in the Israeli-Palestinian borders have affected both humans and nature. They have also led to the formation of spaces of exception, and to environments that, at times, seem paradoxically more resilient and sustainable than others. Border Ecologies and the Gaza Strip, traces the transformation of a small farm in Kutzazh, an agricultural village situated along one of the most militarized borders of Gaza and Israel. The installation tells ten stories that highlight daily life in the farm. It links mundane objects, such as watermelons, sardines, sand and sediments, to bureaucratic protocols, Israeli-imposed restrictions, and continued violence, met by collective acts of survival, resistance, mutual aid, and solidarity.
