In Israel, Palestinian-Christian burial sites are often found vandalized and desecrated by members of other religious groups. Artist Dor Guez, founder of the Christian Palestinian Archive, has used his work to tell the stories of this minority group, their religious practices, and the discrimination waged against them for their heritage and beliefs. Hisexhibition 40 Days featured photographs from the Archive as well as video installations to narrate the losses of the Christian-minority families affected by this violence. Featuring a conversation between Guez and Mitra Abbaspour, associate curator in the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, 40 Days illuminates the pain and endurance of Palestinian Christians living in a hostile land.
Dor Guez is head of the photography department at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem.
