Some may find it encouraging that Klan reps want to shed their image as the gay-bashing, black-hating, lynch-happy anti-Semites we’ve all known for years. Even people like KKK Grand Wizard Johnny Lee Clary are admitting the Kansas shooter was unhinged: “I wanted nothing to do with him,” he told the Huffington Post. “I knew he was a loose cannon.”
So the question arises: Should we rest easy knowing there’s a kinder, gentler Klan out there? I’ll answer that with another question: Are you fucking crazy?
A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.
Ahlam Shibli | Palestine
(Death, no.33) above, (Death, no. 37)below, from the Death series | 2011-2012 | chromogenic print
“Without question, Shibli’s new series, “Death” (2011-12), commissioned by the three museums co-hosting her retrospective (MACBA, the Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto), is her most ambitious and difficult work to date. It provides an in-depth study of commemorative images of Palestinian martyrs in the city of Nablus, a bastion of Palestinian resistance during the Second Intifada (2000-05). A martyr in these circumstances is any Palestinian killed due to the Israeli occupation, including soldiers who died in confrontations with Israeli forces, civilians killed in Israeli attacks and suicide bombers who carried out attacks in Israel.
Shibli sought out the families and friends of these people as well as contacted martyr support associations. The resulting 68 medium and large color prints present posters, murals, banners, paintings, photographs and graffiti of some of the most revered martyrs in Nablus (such as the first Palestinian woman to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel). The subjects are typically shown brandishing a weapon, with backgrounds that include patriotic decorative elements like the Palestinian flag and handwritten exaltations.”-x
