    #ObliteratedFamilies Street Exhibitions

    One year after the beginning of the Israeli military offensive on the Gaza Strip, the situation on the ground in Gaza is appalling, and the victims wait for justice. Activestills collective calls all upon activists and persons of conscience to spread these photos in their communities by making available an exhibition kit including digital images ready to be printed. The exhibit features family photos of those killed and portraits of survivors.

    Not A Dreamland: Artists and Sub-Cultures in Gaza

    When we think of Gaza, we tend to associate it with death, destruction, misery, rockets and Hamas. The overall realities of Gaza are indeed rather grim: this tiny coastal strip has grown into an open-air prison consisting of around 1.5 million Palestinians, most of whom are refugees. They have zero control over their borders and airspace, and have very limited access to the Mediterranean Sea which so prominently characterizes this tiny strip of Palestine.  This is the story of artists within this prison.

    Women Documenting Their Lives In Susiya

    In 2011, the women of Susiya documented their lives as part of a participatory photography project conducted by Activestills photographer Keren Manor and guest photographer Mareike Lauken. Every week, an individual photography workshop was held with one of the women participating in the project. Through learning how to use cameras, the women of Susiya tell the stories of their daily lives in a small village surrounded by illegal Jewish settlements and the ever-present Israeli army. This project was one of many activities of the village´s Creative and Learning Center.

    Activestills Street Exhibitions

    Our goal as a collective is to use photography as an instrument to create awareness on topics that we aspire to change socially or politically. We believe in the power of people to create change in their own society. Motivated by the urge to address individuals and groups with our work, we try to reach wider audiences in independent, unfiltered, and direct ways. Street exhibitions is one of them.

    We Never Finished 1948

    “We never finished 1948”, a slogan commonly heard in Israel and attributed to Moshe Dayan, refers to the fact that half the population of what some Israelis refer to as the “Great Israel” is Palestinian. For us, the ongoing Occupation is not merely an event arising out of the 1967 war, but a continuation of 1948, conceptually and militarily. A project by the photographers collective Activestills and the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

    Squat 60

    After more than 10 years of emptiness and neglect, in early December 2006, a group of people entered the abandoned building at 60 Shenkin Street. For over more than a month, 60 Shenkin Street became a home for social activists, two refugees from Darfur and a single-parent family. It was also used as a community center where movie screenings, lectures and parties were held. On January 14, 2007 at the break of dawn, riot police broke into the building, arrested the residents, and threw their belongings out into the street.

    40 To 67

    From 2006 to 2007, we collected photos for an exhibit which opened in May 2007.  The show  portrays the "victory" of the 1967 war as it is perceived by the Israel public. The exhibit concentrates on four cities occupied by Israel in 1967: Hebron, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Gaza, and intends to show the reality of 40 years of on.

    Victims Of The Wisconsin Program

    In August 2005, steps were taken to implement the Wisconsin Program in Israel – known here as Me-ha-Lev  (From the Heart). Overseas, this program is known as "From Welfare to Work" and signals a new stage in the privatization of social services with the aim of eliminating the welfare state. The photo series "Victims of the Wisconsin Program," presents the women and men humiliated, exploited, and impacted by the Wisconsin Program.

    Jerusalem Dispossessed

    In the same year that Israel celebrates 40 years of the so-called “unification” of Jerusalem, the city has been divided by force, discrimination and injustice. In the “holy city” of 2007, it seems that the only god is “security” and real estate. Israeli policy is drawing a twisting path of a wall, that more than anything, ensures more conflict, suffering and despair.
