Through my interest in the non-violent movements in Palestine I have established contact with Israeli activists and was thus able to visit the region in 2010. I wanted to understand the conflict better by working towards my own conclusion. I wanted to get in touch with the people there, empathize with their situation and experience life under occupation. On the basis of this first visit I decided to get involved for a long term. Equipped with my camera I did this at regular intervals over the last three years.

The exhibition looks back on those years to reflect them as well as to give perspectives. It’s a personal way to rework the experience. It shall communicate more than what I captured in my pictures.

From overwhelming hospitality to hard-to-bear experiences such as a demolition of a home, from violent confrontations to close friendships between Israelis and Palestinians – all these are impressions which help me to get a more differentiated evaluation of the situation in Palestine and Israel.
