Urban Dweller discusses the Israeli separation wall with Sarah Jamal, an international politics PhD candidate at Aberystwyth University whose research focuses on West Bank wall graffiti as a strategy for resistance and reclamation. An excerpt from VICE’s documentary series, “Palestine Vs. Israel – Against the Wall Part 1,” contextualizes the wall’s political history.
Discussion covers the appropriation (and commodification) of the wall by international artists and the aestheticization of the wall from different Palestinian perspectives. Several Palestinian graffiti artists reclaim the narrative by drawing on the deep iconography, symbolism, and language of the region in their work.
