What Remains to be Seen. Art & Political Conflict: Views from Britain, Israel, Palestine and Northern Ireland
What Remains to be Seen. Art & Political Conflict: Views from Britain, Israel, Palestine and Northern Ireland
How is it possible that art has been made and exhibited in Ramallah during one of the most brutal periods in recent Palestinian history? How do Israeli artists who have always believed in a peaceful future for Israel see their state now? Is all art produced either within, or at the margins of, any political conflict inherently ‘political’? And if so, what are the implications of this? It is the common desire to try and address these and many other important questions that brings together the acclaimed list of international artists and authors whose works comprise What Remains to Be Seen – Art and Political Conflict: Views From Britain, Israel, Palestine, and Northern Ireland, edited by Gordon Hon. This richly illustrated collection presents a distinct mix of visual and written works joined by their shared commitments to and critically-refreshing relationships with the many ways in which contemporary art might confront the diverse issues that traverse the political conflicts that occupy the Middle East and Northern Ireland. What Remains to be Seen thus reveals the intricacy of contemporary art's engagement with the politics of both nation-states and ‘everyday life’, while also subtly offering alternative ways through which we might reconsider our relationships both to art and one another.

Abstract

How is it possible that art has been made and exhibited in Ramallah during one of the most brutal periods in recent Palestinian history? How do Israeli artists who have always believed in a peaceful future for Israel see their state now? Is all art produced either within, or at the margins of, any political conflict inherently ‘political’? And if so, what are the implications of this? It is the common desire to try and address these and many other important questions that brings together the acclaimed list of international artists and authors whose works comprise What Remains to Be Seen – Art and Political Conflict: Views From Britain, Israel, Palestine, and Northern Ireland, edited by Gordon Hon. This richly illustrated collection presents a distinct mix of visual and written works joined by their shared commitments to and critically-refreshing relationships with the many ways in which contemporary art might confront the diverse issues that traverse the political conflicts that occupy the Middle East and Northern Ireland. What Remains to be Seen thus reveals the intricacy of contemporary art's engagement with the politics of both nation-states and ‘everyday life’, while also subtly offering alternative ways through which we might reconsider our relationships both to art and one another.
