#72, learn how to see Palestine

This #100hardtruths was shared with me by my friend, the scholar of visual culture,Nicholas Mirzoeff:

“When you think of Palestine—you do, don’t you?—you probably think it’s a terrible exception. It turns out that it isn’t, as the Palestinians have been saying all along. It’s exemplary. The wall. Xenophobia. Religion and guns. Neoliberalism. Habitat crisis. Now do an experiment. Close your eyes. Can you visualize anything in Palestine that isn’t a violent incident? If not, learn how to see Palestine.”
