“By invitation of the Goethe Institute Ramallah, I led a several-week-long workshop with Palestinian youths in Jenin in the summer 2003. Together we built a five-metre tall horse out of scrounged metal taken from destroyed houses and cars. The horse was subsequently towed through the streets of Jenin and, at a later point, almost 200 km away through the occupied territories of the West Bank.”
