Palestine, Art & Liberation: An interview with Alynn Guerra
We had the chance to sit down with local printmaker Alynn Guerra and talk with her about the 2-week trip she took to Israel/Palestine recently.
The trip was organized by Hope Equals and was intended to not only educate people about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but to create a dialogue and exchange between artists there and here.
During the interview we talked about the reason for the trip, Alynn’s impression of what was taking place, stories about some of the people she met, what she learned about the impact of the US support for Israel, the culture of resistance amongst Palestinians and how this trip got her to think about the role of art in liberation struggles. The interview is in 4 parts and is about 30 minutes total.
