Palestine Is Not Alone - Mondoweiss

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Excerpt:

To be sure, the artists who created these posters are not at all concerned by any reputational threats emanating from Israel advocacy. They are concerned solely with projecting this message: Palestine is not alone. The fact that hundreds of artists from around the world created original posters to promote this idea demonstrates the indifference they have towards Zionism’s opinion of them and their work.

Indeed, to be openly denounced by Israel or the United States bestows a sizable grant of revolutionary prestige on progressive and leftist artists, including Israelis and Americans, who stand with Palestine. Many want to be so attacked and consider it an honor, a recognition so to speak, that they stand on the right side of history as they define it. The very fact that Israel advocacy is displeased or scandalized by these posters is seen by the artists as validation of their work’s potency.
