On This Land على هذه الأرض
An exhibition of photographs from Palestine by Sławek Rzewuski. For one month, from 3rd March to 7th April.
There is no getting away from the fact that, as an idea, a memory, and as an often buried or invisible
reality, Palestine and its people have simply not disappeared. No matter the sustained and unbroken
hostility of the Israeli establishment to anything that Palestine represents, the sheer fact of our existence
has foiled, where it has not defeated, the Israeli effort to be rid of us completely.
The photographs, taken over a period of seven years, document the Palestinian struggle in a settler-colonial reality.
A set of colour photographs can also be viewed at Hydra Bookshop, open Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00 – 6:00 and at BASE (Bristol Anarchist Solidarity), please check their website for opening times;
Original prints are available for purchase with all funds raised to contribute to the purchase of Emergency Response Trauma bags for volunteer medics in Palestine.
Sławek Rzewuski is an independent photographer and journalist. He has been published in Le Monde Diplomatique, Rita Baum, and Electronic Intifada.
He is a contributor to a number of publications for grassroot human rights organisations.
