Statement 3: November 2015

Following the first public meeting held by BDZ Group at MayDay Rooms on 3 October 2015, we began gathering the signatures of people wanting to commit to the pledge below. The individuals and organisations listed agreed that their name could be published as part of a list of 100 or more supporters, in the belief that a boycott of the Zabludowicz Art Trust ought to be public and collective.

In solidarity with the Palestinians who have called for a boycott of Israeli cultural institutions that promote acceptance, in the global cultural sphere, of Israel’s ongoing colonisation, occupation and its apartheid policies, and in light of the current escalation of violence against Palestinians in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza, we the undersigned make a public commitment not to show at, collaborate with or participate in any events taking place at, nor to visit or to sell our work to the Zabludowicz Collection, and not to work with Zabludowicz Art Projects/Zabludowicz Art Trust/Daata Editions[1]. We additionally commit, wherever possible, to withdrawing the conceptual content of previous participation in and/or sales made to the Zabludowicz Collection. We shall uphold this pledge until such time as the Directors of the Collection publicly recognise the rights of Palestinians, and desist from all activities and investments supporting the Israeli state in maintaining an oppressive and colonial system of apartheid. In the spirit of the guidelines produced by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), we call on other cultural workers of all nationalities to observe this ‘picket line’. Our solidarity expressed through collective refusal is our strength.

[1] Though itself London-based, the Zabludowicz Collection is principally owned and funded by Zabludowicz Art Trust, which is financially associated with companies that are active in Israel and that provide maintenance and services to the Israeli Airforce. See PACBI’s statement for details: http://www.pacbi.org/etemplate.php?id=2755
