INFO: Based on an idea by Dominik Stahlberg, under the motto NO! EXCUSE 3x3, the artists discussed and created together for a week in October 2007 at the Kavka Youth Meeting Center in Antwerp. With this initiative, the nine artists from Germany, Israel and Palestine wanted to overcome the conflicts of the present and the past, to show and prove that cooperation is possible, despite their different cultural backgrounds. The confrontation of the different artistic interpretations and approaches was a fascinating experience. The result - a painting and a monumental sculpture. The artists donated the works to the city of Antwerp.

The painting harmoniously weaves the religious and political symbols of Israel, Palestine and Germany into a new flag. The white marble sculpture was placed in the Merksem city fortress. Three columns circle around a pyramid bearing the names of the artists.

In addition to these two creations, their works were also on display as part of a joint exhibition. Besides paintings and sculptures, textile art and video art were presented.

Other symposiums and exhibitions of the "NO! Excuse!" idea are to be realized.
