YERIDA going down from Israel
With the series I tried to visualise my impressions of identity constructions of young Israelis and Palestinians. Many layers of Identification are brought up to them, either about a foreign cultural background, the collective memory of the holocaust or the omnipresent conflict and a steady fear.
The construction of the own identity is an issue to all young people, but for several reasons more complex in Israel and Palestine. The youth is forced to serve for a country they cant identify with and they want to leave as soon as possible. The big aim is Europe, where most of their roots actually are.
