Written by Artists for Palestine UK.
This is essential reading for anyone who cares about the arts and social justice.
Readable, succinct, well-sourced and thoughtfully argued, The Case for a Cultural Boycott of Israel has answers to all the questions you’ve ever been asked, or are ever likely to be asked about a cultural boycott of Israel, in 64 pages. With a foreword by novelist Kamila Shamsie.
The booklet includes some clear guidelines to help artists, programers and audiences understand how and where boycott can by used as a morally and politically consistent tactic for promoting justice.
‘The Palestinian call for boycott does not target individual artists according to their nationality, their beliefs, or the content of their art. It focuses on culture’s ties to the Israeli state. This booklet analyses what it is about Israel’s actions that make boycott both necessary and moral. It looks at the role of culture in Israel’s political project and aims to show how cultural boycott can help end Israel’s impunity from the law and advance the cause of Palestinian freedom.’
