Ramallah Syndrome is a collective that examines the side effect of the new spatial and social order that emerged after the collapse of the Oslo ‘peace process’ that was manifested in an urban psychology of ‘hallucination of normality’, the fantasy of a co-existence of occupation and liberty. The work of the collective inclines on questioning issues such as the illusions and realities of the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state; likewise, the consequence of the perpetual persistence of a colonial regime and its legacy on Palestinian national identity. Ramallah Syndrome is ultimately about the critique and potentiality associated with forms of resistance and subjugation in a colonial context. The collective’s conversations were represented through different forms in the 53rd International Venice Art Biennale Palestine c/o Venice 2009, 2nd edition of Cities Exhibition Ramallah – The Fairest of Them All?
