Lawrence Abu Hamdan has been awarded the German Federal Foreign Office Dialogue Award at the European Media Art Festival

This year’s Dialogue Prize has been awarded to the work “Once Removed” by Lawrence Abu Hamdan. “The video is an extraordinarily multi-layered reflection on the act of conversation, the complexity of research and the fluidity of memory. The video also simultaneously examines both the horrors of war and the general blindness of societies that find themselves called into question by the recognition and appreciation of cultural differences,” the jury concluded.
