Decolonizing Architecture

(DAAR): Life after revolution
DAAR (Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency) is an art and architecture collective and a residency programme based in Beit Sahour, Palestine. DAAR’s practice is centred on one of the most difficult dilemmas of political practice: how to act both propositionally and critically within an environment in which the political force field is so dramatically distorted. It proposes the subversion, reuse, profanation, and recycling of the existing infrastructure of colonial occupation.
