So yeah, you’ve probably already seen this on Sabbah’s blog and Subzero Blue, but I can’t help but post it on AndFarAway… as well.
“Antonym/Synonym: The Poster Art of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict” is an online exhibit dedicated to opening a democratic discussion on the effects this conflict has had on contemporary art. The posters are all quite impressive pieces of graphic design, and most of them are deep and well-thought.
There are several galleries, including “US Solidarity with Palestine“, “Zionist Advocacy“, “Arab Solidarity with Palestine“, and “Palestinian Artists“.
I will share some of my favorite posters:
Israel = Aggression
Artist: Na’eem Ismail (Palestine)Circa 1971

And of course, there’s the “Dying to Live” campaign posters, which I love:
Sarah of Palestine hopes to be a Mother Teresa. Dare we say hope still exists?
Johnny of Palestine imagines he can be a Lennon. Dare we say that his imagination is a fiction?
Kareem of Palestine believes he can be a Beethoven. Dare we tell him to hold onto his beliefs?
Artist(s): Unattributed, Jordan, Circa 2002
