Bisan Abu Eisheh

Radio Be’er Sheva, (2014) 2016

Sound installation

Shop #35

Radio Be’er Sheva is based upon interviews with three men who served sentences in Israeli prison on account of their political activities. All three had the role of listening, summarizing and distributing news gathered from smuggled radios. Initially the work existed as a video and sculpture. For the Jerusalem Show VIII Eisheh has re-imagined the piece as a sound environment that considers also the broader condition of confinement produced by the occupation.
