Gaza on Gaza

Issue No. 2466

Gaza on Gaza is an exhibition by Palestinian artists put together in response to Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip last summer. 

Artist Majdal Nateel’s installation If I Wasn’t There is inspired by her experience volunteering with the United Nations and working with children in their shelters.

Her work was smuggled out of Gaza by Channel 4 broadcaster Jon Snow. 

The work consists of 400 drawings, which seek to imagine the dreams and aspirations of the children who were murdered

Each piece is made from fragments of the paper bags used to deliver limited supplies of cement to Palestinians whose homes were bombed. 

Other displays include Through Young Eyes, a series of drawings by Palestinian teenagers.
