The Genocide Project

by Patrick Branigan

Designer: Hila Ben-navat

The purpose of this project, by designer Hila Ben-navat, was to explore the meaning of ‘genocide’ in modern times. Ben-navat examines the term and its uniqueness as well as discusses the circumstances to the creation of the phenomenon and the possibilities of its prevention. In the project, Ben-navat has mapped out 10 of the most significant cases of genocide that has taken place in the past 100 years. Ben-navat then discusses the narrative and characteristics of each case, and its implications on society today.
