The situation the Matzav as it really is. Television audiences might be forgiven for believing that the nightly news presents the whole picture of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The broadcasts are by now familiar. A blown out Israeli bus, charred and smoking. Survivors sitting by the roadside, shocked and bleeding. Israeli tanks rolling into dusty Arab villages. The words cycle of violence , terror , and retaliation . See it all in photographs. But how does it feel to be walking down a street, knowing that at any moment, the next explosion might engulf you and those around you? What is it like to go to work or school on a bus -- in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or Haifa, hoping it will remain intact for the journey? This is a unique, controversial, and thought-provoking artistic critique of the situation in Israel today, conceived and created by the young Israeli artist, Doron Goldenberg, a graduate of the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem. In this powerful work, through the use of both words and images, Goldenberg captures a sense of the impact of terror that can't be broadcast on television. He has also created a visual tool that conveys a mood -- a sensation -- that can't be communicated via a news-commentator. Published in conjunction with Israel at Heart, a non-profit organisation that seeks to promote a better understanding of Israel and her people.
