Meat and Greet: Art Festival Reaches the Arab Galilee

The curators of the Mediterranean Biennale have deflected flack from all sides to bring this exhibition to Sakhnin.

A group of journalists and bloggers hungrily pounced on a heap of skewered, grilled pullets and a stack of hummus-filled pitas, ignoring completely the bucket at their feet crammed with remnants of bloodstained meat. One of the reasons for the intense enthusiasm was probably the smell of the dead animals that pervaded the butcher shop in which this improvised meal happened.
