Bad Freienwalde 27.08.2008. Märkischen Oderzeitung Zu Beginn seiner Karriere stellte er fest, dass es bedauernswert wenig Galerien und Museen in den Städten und Dörfern in Israel gab. Auch der Kunstunterricht, der an Schulen angeboten wurde, sei mangelhaft gewesen, sagt Abed Abdi. Deshalb gründete der Maler und Grafiker mit palästinensischen Wurzeln eine Kunstwerkstatt in Haifa, der drittgrößten Stadt Israels. Zu seinen Schülerinnen gehören Ruba Daoud und Haneen Abotaros. Die beiden hübschen Mädchen, 13 Jahre alt, kamen am Montag, 25. August, mit einer Gruppe Nachwuchskünstler aus Israel zur Ausstellungseröffnung "Abed Abdi" nach Bad Freienwalde. Von den Schülerinnen sind ebenfalls Bilder in der früheren Landratsvilla ausgestellt.

Die Realität des Lebens, d. h. die zwischen Israelis und Palästinensern herrschenden Bezie­hungen von Dialog und Konflikt, nehmen ihren Platz im Bewusstsein der Künstler ein.
