Gaza in plain sight: witnessing in solidarity

Mazen Kerbaj, Jana Traboulsi, Zeina Maasri, Hanan Toukan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


In this visual essay, Mazen Kerbaj and Jana Traboulsi bear witness to the genocidal violence that has been unfolding in Gaza since 7 October 2023. From Berlin and Lebanon, respectively, Kerbaj and Traboulsi have been chronicling and responding to the harrowing day-to-day news and testimonies from Gaza. Their drawings raise fundamental questions about what it is to bear witness to genocide as it unfolds, about the politics of seeing as an act of solidarity against imposed invisibility and about racialized sight – the eye that refuses to see what is hiding in plain sight.
