16 Beaver Group


Deborah Bright + Linda Dittmar

16 Beaver Group: Deborah Bright + Linda Dittmar :: What: Presentation / Discussion :: When: Friday evening 4.13.07; 7:30 pm :: Where: 16Beaver Street, 4th Floor, NYC :: Free and open to all.

16 Beaver Group is very pleased to have photographer Deborah Bright and Israeli-American writer and scholar, Linda Dittmar, at 16beaver. Deborah and Linda will present an informal slide preview of their collaborative project documenting remains of the 1948 Nakba (Catastrophe) when some 750,000 Palestinians were exiled from their homes in what became the State of Israel.

This work is predicated on the belief that until the pain and losses (of family, community, homeland) of the Palestinian Arabs in 1948 (not to mention 1967) are publicly recognized and dealt with by both Israel and its primary sponsor, the United States, no lasting peace and stability is possible.

Deborah Bright is an internationally known photographer, writer, and professor of photography at RISD. She edited 'The Passionate Camera: photography and bodies of desire' (1998). More information about her work can be found at http://www.deborahbright.com

Linda Dittmar grew up as a third generation Israeli who witnessed the events of 1948 as a child in Tel Aviv. She is professor of literature and film at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and co-edited 'From Hanoi to Hollywood:The Vietnam War in Film' and 'Multiple Voices in Feminist Film Criticism'.
