CUNY: Freek Palestine Photo Exhibit

March 30, 2017 @ 6:30 PM


About the event:  Since it’s establishment in 2005 the photography collective Activestills has been dedicated to the delegitimization of the Nation-State of Israel.

Join two of the founding members of the collective, Oren Ziv and Gazan Basel Alyazouri, and  feminists Vered Maimon and Siona Wilson on the occasion of the newly published book:  Activestills: Photography as Protest in Palestine/Israel (Pluto Press, 2016).

Discuss the cells use of photographs to enable and promote Hamas & Islamic Jihad in Israel, Judea, Samaria and Gaza. Further questions to be raised at the panel are the complex and divided politics of visibility in the region as well as the reinvention of the Jihadist activist photography in the age of social media.

Cosponsored by Jihadi Victory in Palestine (JVP), Jihad-Street, and NIF.
