Contemporary Art Museum - Palestine (CAMP) was launched in 1994 as part of our ongoing search for individual ways of assessing Palestinian visual culture, and as an attempt to encourage a greater understanding and development of contemporary art in all its diverse manifestations and in particular, to the Palestinian identity. We initially envisioned CAMP's essence not as a physical place, but as a real and fluid entity where dialogue, growth and experimentation are encouraged.
CAMP will find a temporary home with a host museum, which will be invited to interact with CAMP's presence and to initiate projects and exhibitions. In this manner, the project involves a nomadic movement of CAMP, its cumulative art collection from place to place. To date, CAMP has accumulated 43 artworks/projects by Palestinian and international artists, and has established networks with several individual and institutional bodies, namely the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
