Al Hissan – The Jenin Horse
Art in Public Space Under Conditions of Occupation

By invitation of the Goethe Institute Ramallah, I led a several week long
workshop with Palestinian youths in Jenin in the summer 2003.

Together we built a 5 meter tall horse out of scrounged metal taken from
destroyed houses and cars. The horse was subsequently towed through the
streets of Jenin and, at a later point, almost 200 km away through the occupied
territories of the West Bank.
