Introduction text about "Crossing Borders" project, 2006
by Alexandra Buchler

" The Project crossing Border Art Project was developed around the idea of building bridges in a region at the centre of a long-lasting conflict which has affected and polarized the rest of the world, a region divided by borders that cannot be crossed except by missiles. The project brought together a group of artists from five different countries, working in a range of disciplines, to spend a month in three locations which are geographically very close yet completely isolated from each other: Lebanon, North Israel and the Gaza strip."
