Schöner Medienhack von ein paar Sprayern, die ein paar der Set-Pieces für die Serie Homeland verschönern sollten. Leider fehlte während des Drehs die Zeit, um die Sprüche in arabischer Schrift zu übersetzen, und so prangen nun fette „Homeland is racist“-Sprüche von den Wänden, mindestens in der FolgeS05E02, wahrscheinlich auch in zukünftigen Episoden der fünften Staffel. Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mit der Message wirklich konform gehe (ich kenne die Kritik, würde sie aber nur teilweise unterschreiben wollen), aber genau so muss Streetart sein: Politisch, kritisch, böse und vor allem clever. Nice!

Snip aus dem „Bekennerschreiben“ der Streetartists: “ARABIAN STREET ARTISTS” BOMB HOMELAND: WHY WE HACKED AN AWARD-WINNING SERIES.

ArabianStreetArtists9In our initial meeting, we were given a set of images of pro-Assad graffiti- apparently natural in a Syrian refugee camp. Our instructions were: (1) the graffiti has to be apolitical (2) you cannot copy the images because of copyright infringement (3) writing “Mohamed is the greatest, is okay of course”. We would arm ourselves with slogans, with proverbs allowing for critical interpretation, and, if the chance presented itself, blatant criticism directed at the show. And so, it came to be.

The set decoration had to be completed in two days, for filming on the third. Set designers were too frantic to pay any attention to us; they were busy constructing a hyper-realistic set that addressed everything from the plastic laundry pins to the frayed edges of outdoor plastic curtains. It looked very Middle Eastern and the summer sun and heat helped heighten that illusion. The content of what was written on the walls, however, was of no concern. In their eyes, Arabic script is merely a supplementary visual that completes the horror-fantasy of the Middle East, a poster image dehumanizing an entire region to human-less figures in black burkas and moreover, this season, to refugees. The show has thus created a chain of causality with Arabs at its beginning and as its outcome- their own victims and executioners at the same time. As was briefly written on the walls of a make-believe Syrian refugee camp in a former Futterphosphatfabrik (animal feed plant) in the outskirts of Berlin, the situation is not to be trusted- الموضوع فيه أن.
