Tragedy, conflict, equality, dictatorship, occupation etc, are current and historical events that formulate our existence since the beginning of human race. It is simple to point out on the power structure in its binary, simplistic system: guilty — innocent, occupant — occupied, torturer — tortured, higher – lower etc,but I prefer to consider it as human desire and struggle, which has nothing to do with right and wrong, but in a constant movement to find a new paradigm, which will follow by another one (not necessary a better one) and so on and on.

The world keeps turning round and round and making again and again its faults and its victories.

When considering the relationship between art and politics it seems in most of the cases as mainstream opportunism delivered to the supposedly liberal institutions, which by pointing up political issues clean-up its disturbed conscience. Does it really change the reality? Does it change the views of those that it would like to change?

In dealing with Chinese culture, I find this cultural layering which destroys the old and establishes the new, being it Cultural Revolution or chaotic and unforgiving capitalism.  In dealing with Japanese culture, I find more harmonious culture layering, which contains the conflicts in itself, being dynamic cruel and vicious in the most delicate and sensuous way. In dealing with tyrants, I wonder which culture grows and admire these kind of leaders. Is it possible to deduct from this fact about unconscious of the musses?

Is the world is so different place then it was five hundred years ago? Is it harmonious globalized world with no local tension?  Are those local conflicts so different one from the other?

More specifically: are there any common lines to Ukrainian and Israeli conflicts?
