On the infamous separation barrier between Israel and the Palestinian West Bank, street art meets politics as artists including Banksy, Blu, Ericailcane, Faile, JR, Know Hope, Paul Insect, Ron English, Sam3 and Swoon have left messages for all to see. The walled part of the barrier is full of their scribblings, paintings, stencils, graffiti and posters. Combining pictures with interviews, Concrete Messages looks into the politics behind their art and their motivation for choosing the separation barrier as their canvas.
"What we call possible can change in front of those who address both the Israelis and the Palestinians as friends, and build a project with them. We were sometimes called naive. We hope this naivete is contagious." -- Marco and JR, France"
