The 12 Million

12 Million - the number of residents in Israel and Palestine, which is hardly to be found in official documents or school books on either side. Statistics separately cite 4,4 Million Palestinians and 8 Million Israelis. What about the Arabs living in Israel? Are they Israelis? Does that make them Jewish? What of the Israelis who live in the Westbank? Should we refer to them as Palestinians? „The 12 Million“ is a visual research on diversity in the Israeli and Palestinian societies, hoping to combat stereotypes and highlight personal aspects of individual identities. „My identity is what prevents me from being identical to anybody else.“ Amin Maalouf 208 pages, 11,5 x 9,1 in, digital print 4/4, hardcover, gold embossing, texts in English, Hebrew and Arabic
