Description

In her photographs, the artist Ahlam Shibli deals with the everyday life of the Palestinian population living in Israel and with the consequences that arise from living together in a state of permanent conflict. Here, for the first time, Ahlam Shibli presents her complete series, "Trackers". Taken between January and July 2005 and consisting of 85 photographs, she documents the everyday life of young Palestinian volunteers in the Israeli army, in the so-called Tracker Units. Established by the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces), especially for Palestinians of Bedouin descent, the units are trained to become trackers and deployed in the occupied Palestinian territories and at the borders. 'I am trying to show the price a minority is forced to pay to the majority to be accepted, even if it costs a change in identity, perhaps to survive, or maybe more than this.'
