I Would Like to Visit Israel

I would like to visit Israel is a video art piece that contextualises the desire to travel to Israel within the larger frame work of settler colonialism, the Palestinian diaspora and racist travel visa policies, by articulating it from the perspective of an unnamed Palestinian character with a Jordanian passport. Through on-screen text editing, the project also introduces and questions notions of solidarity between indigenous struggles in North America and Palestine, and problematises the notion of multiculturalism as celebrated by the North American states and Israel.
