GAZA
The right to live in peace

PARTICIPANTING ARTISTS ORGANISED BY

Israel's reaction to the Hamas attack of 7 October 2023, which resulted in the deaths of some 1200 Israelis, both civilian and military, and the abduction of more than 250 Israeli civilians, was the immediate invasion of the Gaza Strip. The invasion and constant bombardment has resulted in the destruction of Gaza, the constant displacement of its population in search of refuge and the death of 30 000 Palestinians, 10 000 of them children. The number of innocent victims and the scale of the destruction of its territory (a mere 365 km2) has struck a deep chord in the conscience of the international community.

The invasion went hand in hand with the siege, closure of border crossings and obstruction of the entry of humanitarian aid. The images that reach us from different media are shocking: villages and towns completely razed to the ground; women, children and the elderly dead, and now children dead from malnutrition and starvation.

The voice of the people for a ceasefire and respect for the lives of Palestinians in their own territory is growing louder and louder. We artists join this voice with our tool of work and expression: the image.

INVITATION
