For years we have provided a space for Israeli and Palestinian artists and communities. The killing in Israel and Palestine is beyond tragic. Our thoughts are with our friends and their families on both sides. We strongly condemn the brutal attack by Hamas on civilians in Israel. Hamas terror cannot legitimise ongoing war crimes by the Israeli military against Palestinians; We condemn and look with horror at the bombing of neighbourhoods and hospitals in Gaza and the imprisonment of people without water, food, electricity and shelter.

We reject the rising antisemitism by right wing groups and parties in Europe and its instrumentalisation in favour of a racist and dehumanising discourse. We oppose the police repression in Germany that prevents demonstrations and the expression of pain and trauma. We remain a space where communities can express and share their culture and heritage. We continue to stand in solidarity with all people living under oppression.
