The second Intifada, which began in September 2000, has marked one of the most tense and painful periods in Israeli history. The television broadcasts are by now familiar. A blown out Israeli bus. Survivors sitting by the roadside. Israeli tanks rolling into dusty Arab villages. The words ?cycle of violence,? ?terror,? and ?retaliation.?
Stay alert - Maybe next time it will be you
How does it feel to fear that at any time a next bomb could explode alongside you? What is it like to go to school on a bus, hoping it will remain intact for the journey?
A controversial work of words and images
State of Siege is a unique, thought-provoking, and artistic critique of the situation in Israel today, conceived and created by the young Israeli artist, Doron Goldenberg, a graduate of the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem.

He has also created a visual tool that conveys a mood - a sensation - that can't be communicated via a news-commentator..
