This exhibition of Israeli and Palestinian artists offers an opportunity to discuss different artistic practices from a conflicted area. Many of the art works in the exhibition are based on Civil Society structures, as many of the artists in this show are themselves social and cultural activists. Despite of wanting to show complexity and variety, the exhibition does not presume to encompass all visions or show the full spectrum of positions. Rather, this show tries to shed light on some interesting corners of the cultural and social practices and debate within the Israeli and Palestinian art scenes.
The artists include the Palestinians Osama Zatar, Raed Bawayeh and Jumana Manna, and the Israelis Yoav Weiss, Shula Keshet, Tal Adler and the Tel Aviv groups Parrhesia and Zochrot.
