The show

The Merz Foundation presents, from 30 October 2023 to 28 January 2024, the new exhibition project Through the Palestinian Museum of Natural History and Humankind, by the artist Khalil Rabah (Jerusalem, 1961), curated by Claudia Gioia.

The exhibition conceived by Khalil Rabah for the Merz Foundation was born as an extension of the Palestinian Museum of Natural History and Humankind (PMNHHk), an artistic project developed as a nomadic museum institution which the artist inaugurated in 2003. The Rabah museum, which includes departments such as geology, botany and paleontology, has seen several iterations around the world and is identified as a continually evolving project.


In Turin, for the first time, Khalil Rabah's Palestinian Museum of Natural History and Humankind takes the form of an archaeological site, in which the visitor is invited to immerse himself in a historical tale conveyed through testimonies and clues. In the spaces of the Merz Foundation, the artist challenges the role of the museum as a mere container and focuses on art as a tool for interpreting and correcting history.

Khalil Rabah's artistic practice ranges between painting, sculpture and installation to construct a lucid and careful analysis of history and its interpretations, questioning the narrative modes and the perception they generate. Fundamental themes such as change, memory and identity intersect in his works, creating new ways of representing communities and the relationships that compose them.
