You Should Never Forget the Jungle

1975, 11:09 min, color, sound

This work was produced at the Oppenheim Studio in Cologne, Germany, and incorporates emblematic objects that are Palestine's performance signatures: scarves, cognac, knives and teddy bears. In You Should Never Forget the Jungle, Palestine is seen in an enclosed room, wearing a scarf and holding a glass of cognac. He begins to chant and keen, hurtling violently against the walls as if trying desperately to break out. Shielding his eyes from the gaze of the camera, he eventually slides out of the camera frame.
