David Reeb

David Reeb, who taught at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem from 2003 to 2007, has participated in the weekly demonstrations against the separation wall in the border town of Bil’in near Ramallah in the West Bank since 2005. He documents the events in the border area with a video camera, uploads the footage to his website and to YouTube, and uses some of the stills as the basis for paintings. In this way, the images are disseminated in very different contexts, for example, as part of the work of human rights organizations, and as evidence in courts of law.
