About

Courage to Refuse takes its name from a humanitarian resistance group in Israel. This work unifies documentary footage (Barlow) from Jenin and Israel fused with a Hebrew transcription (Buckley/Cullen) of the 638 members of the military group Courage to Refuse. The visual component has a sonic accompaniment (Crawforth) offsetting the original sounds recorded in the Middle East. The text, sound and moving image are rendered to reflect the radical contrasts and tensions existing in contemporary Israeli-Palestinian territories. à‚  Katie Barlow, John Buckley, David Crawforth and Shane Cullen were commissioned by Beaconsfield in 2006 to present a collaborative work under the umbrella of the Culture & Conflict Group (established Chicago 1998). Courage to Refuse, the DVD was first presented at Emily Tsingou Gallery as part of A Selected State.
