The Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum’s Visit at ‘The Annual Conference on the Prevention and Care of Pressure Ulcers’

The Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum’s Visit at ‘The Annual Conference on the Prevention and Care of Pressure Ulcers’

A unique encounter has taken place during the exhibition “The Annual Conference on the Prevention and Care of Pressure Ulcers,” at the Chelouche gallery in Tel Aviv. The Israeli Security Services authorized one-time entry to Israel of twenty Palestinians from various villages and towns in the West Bank, to visit the gallery. They were all members of the Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum. For most members this has been a first visit to the city, and certainly to a contemporary art gallery. The reactions to the works, and the things said about them, were fascinating and moving.

The physical phenomenon of pressure ulcers has served in the exhibition as a metaphor to the spatial-conscious-mental state of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation. At this event, movement became possible for a moment. This highly ordinary yet so extraordinary meeting, under the occupation, has raised hope.
