2007-09 Israel, Jerusalem
challenging walls
 

The overall aim of the project is to draw attention to the lives of people who are separated by walls. Physical walls and boundaries may have been torn down in Europe but mental and cultural walls are still prevalent. This project will use new media and bring together artists, researchers and children from countries with a history of walls in order to open new ways of thinking about “walls” and realizing that all people are variations of each other. This project is a plea for true mutual understanding and a truly peaceful co-existence and will reach out to the people in Europe, the Middle East and the world at large.The project embraces four countries with a history of walls and segregation: Germany, Cyprus, Ireland and Israel/Palestine region. The starting point, however, was the wall between Palestine and Israel.

The key elements of the “Challenging Walls” project are:

1. a 4 day art event:

art installations using different media on both sides of The Wall in Jerusalem, for 500 people and a huge press response

2. International conference and workshops of researchers and artists

in Jerusalem on the theme of borders and peoples` living in both sides of borders

This project is supported by the European Commission Culture 2000, ECF European Cultural Foundation, Goethe Institut, Akademie der Künste, Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, CIC Israel, Berliner Botschaft.
