#presentation on the results of the
‘solidarity revival’ workshop
tuesday, november 13 | 14:00 – 15:00
over the course of several days in october, ‘solidarity revival’ #workshop participants were introduced to the history of the #palestinian #poster, how to read and analyze it, and examined the movement of international #solidarity with #palestine and palestinian solidarity with the oppressed peoples of the world through the medium of #posters. the #revolutionary environment in which the concept of solidarity with palestine gained momentum in in the late 1960’s was powerfully expressed through #art, and most effectively through posters that became compelling #visual tools of recognition and #support within an international network of solidarity.
the #revolution posters, particularly of palestinian posters expressing solidarity with people in equal straits, declined as palestinian need superseded dynamic expression of reciprocity with other oppressed peoples. the palestinian museum attempts, through art, to bring palestine back to the arena of mutual solidarity.
the participants will discuss and showcase the posters produced during the workshop, expressing solidarity with current crises and causes in #yemen, #syria, #venezuela, #africa, and other countries.
