Parrhesia

Parrhesia is a group founded in 2000 by Jewish and Palestinian activists, artists, designers, and photographers in Israel, which supports dialog with the Palestinian population of Israel, and advocates their equal rights. In the course of the project Through Language, which has been running since 2006, the Arabic place names in Jerusalem and Jaffa that have been effaced on road signs are replaced by graffiti. In collaboration with the initiative Zochrot [remembering], which was founded in 2002 and works to keep remembrance alive of the Palestinian Nakba [catastrophe] – the forced expulsion of Palestinians in 1948 – the group Parrhesia publishes the magazine Sedek [the rupture]. To this day, the expulsion is not officially thematized, and the publication of a magazine in Hebrew on this subject represents breaking a taboo. Among the recent activities of the Zochrot initiative there is an art gallery in Tel Aviv, which opened in 2007. At the end of November 2013, for the first time a film festival took place on the subject in Tel Aviv. In Germany, the Nakba was presented as a theme for the first time in 2007 in a documentary film and a touring exhibition of the organization Flüchtlingskinder im Libanon e.V.
