In a coffee shop in Ramallah, three versions of one story tell how the remains of Palestinian icon Yasser Arafat traveled to the esplanade of the Mosque of Harm el Sharif in Jerusalem. A legend is on its way to freedom.
I belong to the post-utopia generation, the “stone kids” who grew up in Jerusalem, those who had a dream and never achieved it. In Dead Sea, I use the figure of Arafat as a symbol and his personal and national dreams as an utopia. Through the three stories of Dead Sea, I would like to “dream” of achieving freedom and liberation.
