Jordan Cucumber (ongoing)

For Subcontracted Nations, Tom Bogaert invited artists, students, teachers and any others, to paint Jordanian flags on fresh cucumbers

The proposal by which West Bank Palestinians simply have to go to Jordan for all their problems to be solved is called the ‘Jordan option.’ (…) In discussing this Jordan option, Khalid Mishal (the leader of Hamas) and other Arab leaders jokingly call it the ‘Jordan cucumber’ because the Arabic word ‘khiyar’ translates as both ‘option’ and ‘cucumber’.
