28 Magazine, special issue 17

A writing initiative that engages a continuous discourse on the current Palestinian conundrum between the global health crisis and the Israeli colonial project. The initiative questions the crisis and the subsequent collapse of the global economy, and its repercussions on Palestine and its persisting colonial conditions.

This issue/edition was produced as the second phase of the Coronaphone project, launched by the A.M. Qattan Foundation at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the first phase, a number of writers were requested to create short texts to publish on social media sites for the purpose of creating a wide discussion on the current crisis. Afterwards, editor Dalia Taha and Magazine 28 were commissioned to transform the project into a magazine.


The 17th edition comes with the participation of young writers from different Palestinian geographies who narrated in their writing the impact of the pandemic on their daily lives, extrapolating their futures and the unknown.
