From 13 – 27 April 2014, PAPA settled down as a temporary office in Ramallah, Palestine. Hosting organization is RIWAQ Centre for Architectural Conservation. Together with the architects of RIWAQ, PAPA did fieldwork in the city to discover the Tactics of Life.

PAPA’s (participating artists’ press agency) street level observations inform specialist arenas as city development, politics and the news industry. PAPA is an instrument for world mapping. In PAPA projects correspondents share commissions while everybody stays in his/her own country. In PAPA labs PAPA settles down as a temporary office in cities all over the world to do fieldwork with local photographers/researchers.
