Memories of Imagined Places, 2010

Memories of Imagined Places is a work of photographic and textual historiography. The point of departure is Palestinian villages that existed before 1948, and the sites have been selected on the basis of young Palestinians' inherited memories of their families' villages being destroyed and depopulated. The 11 villages in the former districts of Jaffa, al-Ramlah, Gaza, Hebron have been selected on this basis, and located with help from researcher and writer Noga Kadman. Maj Hasager then travelled to the destroyed villages to produce new images of what remains of these different places.

Memories of Imagined Places is supported by the Danish Arts Council.
