Hurting Inside

This X-ray showing a nail in a person’s neck is from the lead image of Inside Terrorism: The X-Ray Project, an exhibition by Diane Covert that was featured in the Bates Chapel in early February. Covert’s project uses X-rays and CT scans from the two largest hospitals in Jerusalem to depict graphically the effects of terrorism on a civilian population. The exhibit was part of “Art and Alterity: Beyond the Other as Enemy in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict,” a series of Bates events organized by Anna Levy ’09 of Portland and College chaplain William Blaine-Wallace that used arts-related programming to prompt campus conversations about Israeli-Palestinian relations.
