The Ambassador

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Hebrew translation:

(text in yellow) The ambassador

(text in white)

when people around the world think about Israel, it has been a long time since they have thought about oranges, kibbutzes, or views of the Dead Sea

when Israel comes up, everyone thinks about wars and an army that subjugates another people

this is how we are seen in the world

it's a shame.

Sighting: Tel Aviv, Israel, 2009

Curator's note: the posters in this series, entitled, "Isreal-ity" were published and exhibited publicly by Peace Now

the name of the exhibit, as well as its content, is a take-off on the concept of the "reality" TV genre and is meant to convey a more honest and gritty sense of life in Israel than is often found in traditional, gallery or museum sponsored poster exhibits
