Reflections: should DJs endorse a cultural boycott of Israel?

On Sep 12th 2018, a handful of influential DJs – including Four Tet, Ben UFO and The Black Madonna – leant their voice to a new campaign backing a cultural boycott of Israel.

What seems on the surface to be a united front in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle, has proven to be polarising and divisive among their contemporaries and fans. What’s actually going on? How does the cultural boycott of Israel affect the Palestinians? What does it mean for a liberal-minded global dance music community? Are there more productive ways to offer support?

This eight minute film suggests some answers.
