Solution 196-213: United States of Palestine-Israel / by Kunstsaele

A book presentation and conversation with Joshua Simon and Ingo Niermann in collaboration with Sternberg Press. 

Solution 196–213: United States of Palestine-Israel (edited by Joshua Simon), is an anthology of texts proposing a doable solution for the region. With contributors based in Ramallah and Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Vienna and Ramallah, Beirut and Jerusalem, New-York and Bethlehem, Nazareth and Warsaw, the book offers eighteen solutions and ways to do them. 

“Solution” is a tricky term especially in relation to the ongoing newspeak of the last two decades in Palestine-Israel. The idea is therefore to rethink the different antagonisms that structure our ways of resistance and compliance: to rethink Semitism and 1948, rethink identity and territory, rethink resistance and memory, rethink democracy and state, rethink Zionism and decolonization, rethink refugee and property, rethink religion and solution. With contributions by Tal Adler/Osama Zatar, Asma Agbarieh-Zahalka, Maayan Amir/Ruti Sela, Ariella Azoulay, Yael Bartana/Sebastian Cichocki, Raji Bathish, Itzhak Benyamini, Sari Hanafi, Sandi Hilal/Alessandro Petti/ Eyal Weizman, Yazan Khalili, Ohad Meromi/Joshua Simon, Norma Musih, Ingo Niermann and Noam Yuran.
