A number of years ago I went back to uni to study Fine Art.
In my final year I was sitting at my desk trying to think of a good idea.
But I was stuck. I was stuck because of one recurring thought – ‘The JEW’.
But I thought: ‘I can’t possibly do work on the Jew’ – it’s too difficult, too uncomfortable, too political and too personal.
And the thought of it made me cringe.
But there was no other topic that felt more urgent or relevant.
So I made this t-shirt and wore it around the neighbourhood.
I wanted to understand why this word did make me cringe, why it felt so heavy, so loaded, and so scary.
And why it troubled me and made me feel unsafe.
