Monotone - Ayman Al-Husari:
The idea of ??this artwork revolves around our life in the Gaza Strip; one single scenario put in an endless loop and we always know how it ends.

The situation in Gaza is like a noose tightening around our necks little by little until the soul almost leaves the body. And at that moment, the “controller” loosens his grip a little. And we’re back to square one, waiting for it to start all over again. It’s all part of the controller’s plan to keep one’s mind so occupied with putting food on the table and seeking ways to fulfill essential needs, such as electricity supply, travel and movement, and other basic requirements of life.

Fenced Off - Contemporary visual arts exhibition:
The art displayed in this exhibition is the work of twelve young artists from the Gaza Strip who were defined by the closure of the past 15 years. Inspired by this isolation, the artists were stimulated to create art using non-traditional means to embody their reality over the past 15 years.
What you will see is an attempt to answer questions posed by an entire generation longing for freedom, love, dignity, and much more, every day."

" Gaza’s Youth: Suspended Lives, Fading Opportunities

Gaza – A new online survey conducted by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) found that 9 out of 10 young people from Gaza who took the survey believe their lives are abnormal.

Two thirds of the respondents said they are dependent on their families for income, whilst 40% reported having no hope of finding a job opportunity in the next 15 years.
