Description: Abandoned by its Palestinian owner in the 1948 war; requisitioned by the Israeli government as vacant; rented to Jewish Algerian immigrants in 1956; purchased by a university professor who undertakes its transformation into a three-story house in 1980… This West Jerusalem building is no longer the microcosm it once was 25 years ago. Its inhabitants dispersed, this common space has disintegrated, but it remains both an emotional and physical center at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian situation. Concrete reality has transformed into scattered stories and memories, and a new identity - a new diaspora - has evolved.
