peace activists vs. Israeli Tank, 2002 by Larissa Sansour
Peace Activists vs. Israeli Tank has the struggle on the ground as its main focus. The piece is a six minute long video clip showing a group of peace activists trying to hinder the progress of an Israeli tank in the occupied territories.’
The footage is kept raw and unedited accompanied by monotonous electronic music. Aside from this dramatic stand-off Peace Activists vs. Israeli Tank gets its strenght from its recontextualization of what we normally understand as news footage. The venue, the display, the soundtrack and the sheer duration of the piece all play a part in concoeting a drama unlike anything we’ve ever seen on television. time 6.00 min
