Rajie Cook (July 6, 1930 – February 6, 2021)
In 1999, after 46 years as a graphic designer, he found time to explore this new medium, sculptural “assemblage”. (see https://almostarts.tumblr.com/post/644208309864415232/rajie-cook-july-6-1930-february-6-2021)
The inspiration and opportunity to explore this mode of artistic expression comes at a time when his commercial career has sufficiently matured so that Ihe can apply his skills, experiences, and a lifetime of artistic perspective to create “statements” with these assemblages.
Many of the “Boxes” that he has created are an expression of the artist’s deeply felt concern for human rights and for the tragic conditions in the Middle East.
They were created to articulate the circumstances and experiences he encountered during the ten years he has served on the Task Force for the Middle East, a group sponsored by the Presbyterian Church, USA. With this group he has traveled on fact-finding trips to Israel, Jordan, and Palestine (West Bank & Gaza)
Izraelben a reptéren dolgoztam, Tel-Aviv, Ben Gurion, kis kipával a fejemen, melyet az utcán találtam. A Magyarországról érkező turisták voltak a specialitásom:
- Bocsànat, elnézést, minden pénzem és iratom ellopták, a nagykövetségig sem tudok eljutni… ki tudna segíteni egy kis sékellel?
A bolt ment, mendegélt, de aztán néhány hét után rámszólt egy érkező utas:
- Nebazzz, te még mindig nem jutottál el a magyar nagykövetségig?
És rámhívta a rendőröket.

The Biden administration is facing growing criticism for failing to lift US sanctions imposed last year on war crimes prosecutors at the international criminal court, amid reports that Israel is lobbying to keep them in place.
The sanctions, targeting officials in the ICC prosecutors and their families were imposed by the Trump administration in September in retaliation for launching investigations into the Afghan and the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.
Days after Joe Biden was inaugurated, the state department said that, though the new administration did not agree with the decision to launch those investigations, “the sanctions will be thoroughly reviewed as we determine our next steps”.
Over a month later, there has been no move to lift the sanctions, and a state department spokesperson said this week they had no further comment. The failure to take action has provoked unease among US allies in Europe and elsewhere, who are staunch supporters of the ICC.
Israel: When you hide something from the public for 73 years, the least you deserve is a visit to the International Criminal Court (ICC)!
Thanks to the עקבות Akevot Institute for their tireless work to hold Israel accountable.

one of my favorite things is watching a movie or a show or a song in english, and hearing someone says something in hebrew, even if it’s just Shalom or something. it’s like,,, yeah,,, We Are Here, we didn’t die, we can hear you, They Tried To Kill Us But They Failed So Let’s Go Eat, we are here, we talk and listen and exist, we use this language that died but we brought her back because we loved her THAT MUCH, we loved her so much and we brought her back to life and now we here and we talk every day with one another, and you do too, you don’t speak hebrew but still you use it in your movies and your songs because it echoes your past too, because your bible is built upon our language and because you recognize how deep we mourned it, how long we went without it, how important it all is to us. so yeah, i get excited hearing my words in foreign media. because it’s like you take my hands in yours and say to me: “we see you. you matter. you are real.” and we are. i am. i am real and i exist and this is my language, and these are my people, and we are not lost and we are happy and we are remembered.
