RETURN.
John Halaka
The images are deliberately devoid of overt political and cultural references to Palestine. By avoiding images that are culturally specific, I hope to underscore the parallels between the struggle of the Palestinians and other persecuted people. The emotional and psychological impact of the drawings lay in their universal reference to surviving political and cultural traumas; the yearning to reclaim shattered pasts; and the desire to create a future that is free of persecution. The repeated words I employ to construct the images can be applied to most historical and contemporary political tragedies.
