chained displacements

From Rhizome Artbase

Description

Chained displacements -- ground zero for terror evolves around the
tragic life of 2 communities -- the Jewish Israeli and the Arab Palestinian -- an emblem of a modern era, where the construction of national identity takes priority over any other human virtues. The work fragments the concept of national identity, thus revealing the foundations on which the construct stands. The digital means for producing the work, and its digital distribution via URL, seem to me the appropriate medium for such a work, as the digital means of production dialectically produce both digital terror and cultural works.
