In 2011 we interviewed Jack Persekian in Sharjah and two years later at Art Dubai. We spoke of his early days curating in Ramallah and his plans now for a definitive collection, housed in a museum that would counter the decimation of Palestinian history by paucity, physical and ideological war, ignorance and lack of access. The Palestinian Museum which started out as an online archive, we are now pleased to report this much needed museum is nearly done.

The inaugural exhibition Never-Part will include 240 interviews with Palestinians living across historic Palestine and all over the world, all of which are already completed in advance of the opening next year.
