We are an informal group of writers, artists, curators and filmmakers who come together for specific projects to raise money for Palestinian humanitarian needs.
For our Project 1 we raised money for Medical Aid for Palestinians through the sale of posters made by a compelling list of artists.
We would like to thank all the artists involved, who we could not have done this without, and our fiscal sponsor The Mosaic Rooms.

Here and Elsewhere, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin and Anne-Marie Mieville.
Measures of Distance, Mona Hatoum
Off Screen, Mohannad Yacoubi
It has been 45 years since Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin, and Anne-Marie Miéville made Here and Elsewhere, a filmic essay that has exercised a talismanic power over generations of audiences and artists with its stark and knowing meditation on cinema’s own limitations in representing faraway realities, in this case, the ongoing Palestinian resistance. Screened alongside, Mona Hatoum’s elegiac and epistolary Measures of Distance (1988) and Mohanad Yaqoubi’s Off Frame (2016) represent two films from Palestinian filmmakers of different generations that, like Godard, Gorin, and Miéville’s canonical effort, offer up inspired explorations of word, image, and narrative. Proceeds from this screening will go toward Medical Aid for Palestinians.

Discussion after the screening with Ed Halter
When Israel made it illegal to display the Palestinian flag in occupied Palestine, or its four colors red, black, green and white placed next to each other in any form, Palestinians started to carry watermelons. We asked artists to riff off the symbol of the watermelon.
If you would like to see the posters they are on display in London at, 34 Bourdon Street, London W1K 3PR. Please email us to arrange a time and we will happily open the space for you.
