OCCUPIED: A Selection of Palestinian Artworks
Palestinians have been living under occupation for over 50 years. Though many accounts have been heard about daily struggles and injustices, it’s impossible to know how it feels unless experienced first-hand. Being occupied is not just a force that takes over the land, it restricts people physically and can even inhabit the mind.Art is one of the great forms of expression and has helped these artists communicate their thoughts, feelings and reality. Through the pieces in this exhibition we can experience frustration and disillusion but also perseverance and hope.
