THE WALLS OF NABLUS: From the Romans to Hamas
a FREEXERO.COM event

The Walls of Nablus event image

  • Location: Interurban Gallery - 1 East Hastings (at Carrall)
  • Opening: Thursday, April 5, 6pm-9pm
  • Exhibition runs until April 28
  • Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, 1pm-5pm

The Interurban Gallery and ISM Vancouver present a photo-documentation exhibit entitled THE WALLS OF NABLUS: From The Romans To Hamas by FREEXERO.COM.

THE WALLS OF NABLUS documents the shocking destruction of this ancient city in Palestine by the illegal Israeli occupation as well as the ongoing resistance to the occupation.

The images reveal walls sprayed with graffitti and bullet holes. Layers of posters showing martyred fighters mix with politicians, cell phone ads and local event announcements.

Squat roman arches, narrow alleys, barricaded doors and piles of rubble tell the ongoing story of occupations, demolitions, alterations, repair and conflict.

The people of Nablus have been under brutal economic and military siege for 6 years. But like the walls of the city, the people's resistance and reslience remains strong.

  • FREEXERO.COM is a collective commited to confronting cultural and political elitism.
  • FREEXERO.COM is a collaboration of art and politics, a "Temporary Autonomous Zone" for conversations, performance and revelations.

Reporters covering Israel are routinely confronted with the question: why not call Hamas a terrorist organisation? It's a fair point. How else to describe blowing up families on buses but terrorism?

But the difficulty lies in what then to call the Israeli army when it, too, at particular times and places, has used indiscriminate killing and terror as a means of breaking Palestinian civilians. One of those places was Rafah, in the southern tip of the Gaza strip, where Rachel Corrie was crushed by a military bulldozer nine years ago as she tried to stop the Israeli army going about its routine destruction of Palestinian homes.
