ISE hosts Trócaire installation highlighting house demolition in Palestine

ISE is delighted to partner with Trócaire to bring the Home Truth exhibition/installation to Trinity on Tuesday February 20th. The installation sheds light on the forced displacement of Palestinian communities in the West Bank, Palestine. It focuses in particular on the demolition of Palestinian homes by the Israeli military. The installation takes the form of household items piled together, representing the remnants of a home that has been destroyed. At the centre of the scene is a refrigerator, which contains various artefacts and audio-visual material related to home demolitions in Palestine, including a diorama made out of children's toys showing a home demolition in progress, as well as rubble from a real Palestinian home.

TrĂ³caire staff/volunteers will be on hand at all times to help students engage with the installation and answer any questions. Please visit the installation in the foyer of the Arts Building all day.
