Ik ben Ada, kunstenaar (http://www.adakrowinkel.nl
) en voor 6 weken op de West Bank om een kunstproject voor te bereiden. Een van de onderdelen van het project wordt een lichtprojectie van kunstwerken op de afscheidingsmuur in Betlehem. Een lichtprojectie van foto's van kunstwerken. Zie bericht hieronder. Ik nodig je van harte uit om jouw visie op bezetting te geven via beeld, woord of geluid. Er zijn geen kosten aan verbonden.
Call to artists worldwide
Imagine what it is to be born in Bethlehem, 2017.
The Arab Educational Institute (AEI) and Palestine Link (PL) invite artists to participate in an exhibition near the so-called separation wall in Betlehem in the occupied West Bank. The exhibition will be displayed during some Ramadan evenings in the first half of June 2017, the year in which Palestinians will commemorate 50 years of occupation.
All artistic works are welcome: paintings, videos, photos and performances. Paintings, videos and photos will be shown digitally on a screen on the wall around Rachel’s Tomb (north Bethlehem), while performances will be presented in front of it. The preferred language, if language is needed, is English. We ask you to express your vision on occupation and/or freedom.
Besides the exhibitions of artists AEI will present ‘mental maps’ of local people that show the Palestinian environment from an uncommon, imaginative perspective, with an emphasis upon visions of freedom and sumud. Sumud – Arabic for steadfastness or resilience – represents the strong connection Palestinians have with their homeland.
We invite you to send your artistic work in digital form, or to come over mid-June to show the work or performance yourself in front of a local and international audience.
Photos must be minimum 72 dpi.
This project will be largely a voluntary effort and the organizers will not be able to accommodate any costs made. However, we do commit ourselves to show artistic works according to our abilities and according to any guidelines given as long as they fit the occasion and context of display. We are ready to be in contact with you about any thematically or practically related questions you may have. Please describe your idea in general terms and indicate what kind of practical support you would need in order to present a display of your work.
You are invited to send your contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org
with cc to email@example.com
before December 31.
The contributions will be curated by Toine van Teeffelen, educational advisor at AEI, in communication with Ghada Zeidan, director PL.
