In 2010, M. Baers learned of K. Hourani’s plan to bring Picasso’s 1943 painting Buste de femme to Ramallah for an exhibition at the International Academy of Art, Palestine. The two-year effort to coordinate the loan from the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and stage the exhibition, which took place in June 2011, was hindered by the conditions imposed by the Israeli occupation, necessitating intricate negotiations with shippers, insurers, bureaucrats, and politicians. While this story is well known, having attracted a great deal of press coverage while also being documented in the 2012 documentary Picasso in Palestine by Hourani and lmmaker Rashid Masharawi, Baers’ graphic novel, An Oral History of Picasso in Palestine, suggests there is more to tell. The result of extensive research, this work retells the story of the Picasso in Palestine exhibition, exploring the history of the project’s gestation as well as its relevance to the question of how Israel actually administers its occupation.
