Exile and Return to Miska, by Ahmad Barclay, developed out of Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency (DAAR), in Beit Sahur studio. Ahmad’s narrative of ‘re-emergence’ imagines a return taking place in four stages: first, symbolic interventions on the site of the village; second, a token return to Miska by Palestinians living in Israel; third, an actual return by a handful of other families, who begin to recreate the urban fabric; fourth, a solidification of the urban fabric as the remaining families choose to return or to remain absent.
