The stone wall that surrounds Musrara/Morasha can be regarded as a sound barrier wall – but more than that it is the unofficial border between East and West Jerusalem. The original and utopian plan for the seam line area sported bridges, a park, promenade and a sunken road – but was replaced by a highway and an impervious wall, with the thought that “good fences make good neighbors.”  The works in the exhibition use the wall as a starting point, offering the chance to examine our complicated approach towards walls, borders and no-man’s-land that lies in between.

The Muslala Terrace: An Urban Oasis

Muslala is a nonprofit organization established in 2009 by artists, residents, and community activists of Musrara neighborhood in Jerusalem. Muslala Project invites visitors to explore and research mainly along the seam area of Jerusalem. We believe in exhibiting art on the streets and in public spaces, particularly in the fascinating and complex area where East meets West. The project invites the public to participate in activities that take place throughout the year, such as the "urban art tracks", the Muslala community workshop, the communal garden, and the meeting point. Guided tours by members of the group are available and adapted to groups and individuals.
