What is Contrapuntal?
I lived and worked in Gaza, 2011 – 2015. I want to add adjectives to our understanding of the community of Gaza: young, ambitious, educated, loving, resisting and audaciously human.
The name ‘Contrapuntal’ refers to the harmony of hope that I used to hear, in the voices of my Israeli relatives and my Gazan colleagues.
We need to de-exceptionalize Israel-Palestine, and bring this conflict into the realm of law and (equal) human rights. That’s where justice will be found.
