We present a video on power, violence and health in Gaza edited by Haim Yacobi, Michelle Pace, Ziad Abu Mustafa, Marian Noaman launched on Wednesday 5 of May at Virtual IAS festival.
What is the role of art and artists in an extreme case of violence such as in Gaza, and what can we learn from Gazan artists about hope and resilience?
The form of slow violence in Gaza operated by Israel seems to be forgotten but the people of the Gaza Strip continue to live without free access to the outside world. Years of protracted humanitarian crisis have all but exhausted the resilience of the two million Gazans. In the midst of chaos and despair there remains hope, particularly expressed in Gazan art.
