The 1964/65 World’s Fair took place in Sumaya’s future home, New York City. The Fair’s theme, “Peace Through Understanding”, was “dedicated to man’s achievement on a shrinking globe in an expanding universe”. Many countries participated, including Jordan, which had a pavilion that displayed a mural of a woman holding a child and a poem dedicated to raising awareness for the plight of the Palestinian refugees. The mural popped the Fair’s utopian bubble, which caused controversy and created much tension, media attacks as well as protests and counter-protests. Ironically, the Jordanian pavilion foresaw the future and it wasn’t a time of peace or understanding…it was the 1967 war, which resulted in the further displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians. Oum Kalthoum drowned out the sounds of the Israeli fighter jets and school days that provided escapism…Remembering the Future fuses Sumaya’s memories with visions from the World’s Fair into an entanglement that depicts images of Palestinian agency, as they actively challenge and undermine the Fair’s naïve narratives of the future.
