Khaled’s Ladder

Against the backdrop of the US Presidential election, and increasingly anti-immigrant rhetoric coming from Donald Trump and the Republican Party, Palestinian artist, Khaled Jarrar, travels along the US/Mexican border from San Diego/Tijuana to El Paso/Juarez. Along the way Jarrar explores common concerns and human stories along the border. His journey culminates with the installation of an artwork made from stolen pieces of the US/Mexico border wall, in Juarez, Mexico. Although Jarrar has not given the monument a name, local people are calling it, “Khaled’s Ladder.”
