Bingo Palestine / Netta Weiser
“Bingo Palestine” is a nomadic game / performance enacted in various cities and contexts, aiming to unfold new arenas encountering our relation to the Israeli / Palestinian territory. The game revolves around a map of Palestine drawn by the British Mandate prior to the war of 1948. During the event this map is transformed into playing boards, the participants reorganize the space, share fake memories and navigate through imaginary landscapes. By gathering as players, ad hoc cartographers or misusers of the map, we will engage in different interactions with the space and the historical moment it embodies, inventing new trajectories between what can be said, imagined or done in relation to it. The gaps between our knowledge and colonial fantasies, between the map and the territory, between speech and the body, are our spaces of action. We need new games!
* Bingo Palestine is supported by “The Lottery Foundation for Arts and Culture”.
Ruler of one hill / Moran Sanderovich
Show them how the weapon can go deep
clean and rub it
until it stands up proud
now revenge the open skin
Let the wind blow on the bones
between finger and arm
between eye and breath
sort out the pieces
gather them quickly, fast
before the wind blows again
before the ground swallows
