The chapter reveals how Israeli artists since the early 1980s have introduced into their works the problem of the divided reality and the need for a critical examination of the Zionist ideology that created the State of Israel. The first and second intifada exposed the nationalist roots of the dispute and reinforced among the artists and their audiences, as seen in many works, an awareness of the harm done by the occupation-to both the Israeli Jews and the Palestinians. The art provides a bleak exposure of the occupation that no longer allows it to be disregarded, and demands a solution.
