35 Prints - 35 Years of Occupation

35 Prints - 35 Years of Occupation. Project by Israeli and Palestinian artists.
May 2004

Since 1981, Israeli and Palestinian artists have collaborated on a series of joint projects protesting the occupation and working towards a joint future based upon equal, secure and free co-existence, in which the culture of one people enriches and reinforces that of the other, rather than seeking to overwhelm or subjugate it.

From their outset, the joint Israeli-Palestinian exhibitions have sought to promote the following principles:
- Opposition to the occupation
- Two states for two peoples
- A shared Jerusalem
- Support for non-violent means of resolving the conflict
In defiance of the painful situation in which we presently find ourselves - violent, oppressive and seemingly without a solution - and in a direct challenge to the renewed threat of population transfer, re-occupation and terror, we, as artists are determined to persist in our efforts to promote peaceful dialogue, towards a shared peaceful future for both peoples.

In June 2002, a group of Palestinian and Israeli artists - operating in conjunction with the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Coalition - began work on a portfolio of original screenprints designed to promote these ideals. The entire portfolio of 35 prints - referring to 35 years of occupation - was printed at the Har-El Print Workshop in Jaffa, and is to be exhibited in Israel, Palestine and internationally.
