„During 2010 I have been teaching video to a group of young Palestinian women in Hebron. Hebron is split into 2 sectors: H1, governed by the Palestinian authority, and H2, an Israeli governed enclave with 600 Israeli soldiers, 600 Jewish residents and 35,000 Palestinians residents. The traffic between the two sectors of the city is constant, a part of the residents‘ routine, while driving a vehicle in H2 is permitted only to Jews and foreigners. The video shows us the families and homes I visited, a wedding I was invited to, and of course – the outside views: the landscape, soldiers, the wire and walls.. „H2″ is the story of my impressions in Hebron.“ (Nurit Sharett)

CAMP is a 3-part, single channel, video essay exploring the secrets that underscore my personal relationship to Jewish history and culture. Through a look at 3 camp environments, I engage with a queer re-telling of the traditional Purim story, the censored passages in Anne Frank’s diary, and a haircut given to me by my grandfather in order to reveal the ways in which these secrets haunt the surface of our cultural moments. CAMP is framed through a play on the word ‘camp’ utilizing a camp sensibility amidst an analysis of temporary built environments. Through this frame I engage with what we choose to keep hidden in these contemporary moments, and point to a larger fear of speaking out against injustice as a cause for silence.
