Summary
In 2005, a group of photographers took a stand alongside the people of the small town of Bil'in, and documented their fight to stop the Israeli government building the infamous West Bank Barrier. Inspired by what they had seen in Bil'in, the group went on to form 'Activestills', a collective whose work has become vital in documenting the struggle against Israeli occupation and everyday life in extraordinary situations. 'Activestills: Photography as Protest in Palestine/Israel' examines the collective's archive and activity from historical, theoretical, critical, and personal perspectives. It is the result of an in-depth dialogue among members of the collective and activists, journalists, intellectuals, and academics, and stands as the definitive study of the collective's work. Combining striking full-colour photographs with essays and commentary, 'Activestills' stands as both a major contribution to reportage on Israel/Palestine and a unique collection of visual art
