Israel’s War Against Palestine: Documenting the Military Occupation of Palestinian and Arab Lands

Prints by Israeli artist Shimon Tzabar to finance Palestinian artists under siege

24 May 2010

The Israeli artist and writer, Shimon Tzabar, lived in London in a self imposed political exile, in protest against the Israeli occupation. Shimon died in 2007, but his legacy of supporting the Palestinians is still alive. Four limited edition prints will be sold to raise funds for Palestinian artists in Yibna refugee camp in Gaza. The prints prices range from £400-600.
You are invited for a preview of the prints and a chat with his partner, Judit Druks.
Date: Thursday 27 May
Time: 7-9pm
Place: at the McConvilles, 60 Gibson Sq, Islington N1 0RA

All Welcome


The prints:
(1) the landscape of my country [2003] 5/10
Shimon painted “the landscape of my country” [2003], of barbed wires at the same time he wrote “The Michelin Guide to Israeli prisons, jails, concentration camps and torture chambers”. Michelin took Shimon to court for using their trademark.
