No Signal - Shayma’ Hasanein:
This artwork reflects the concept of isolation and lack of access to the broadcast signal.

I see Gaza as a large satellite dish whose wires have been cut and whose transmission and reception signals have been lost. Around it, I see small satellite dishes hanging, like the dreams and aspirations of young people that are difficult to achieve within the confines of a small spot on the surface of this planet: Gaza.

The Gaza I wish to see one day is the land where I can have my most basic rights. But now, the wires connecting it to the rest of the world have been cut, and the dreams of traveling, living, working and building oneself have been left hanging in the wind.

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.
