OSTRALE’Biennale 2017

Mehdian was born in Palestine and came to Lebanon with her parents in 1948, fleeing the Arab-Israeli war. She never went to school and doesn’t remember her age. She lives with her 40 year old daughter in a one bedroom basement.
Shahinaz is a second generation Palestinian refugee living in Beirut, Lebanon. Her teeth were removed when she was misdiagnosed with cancer. It is very difficult for her as a stateless person to receive health services.
