PANORAMA

Young Video Art from Israel
The news that regularly reaches us from Israel is rarely reassuring. Even if there are periods of apparent peace, the conflict continues to smolder and violence seems imminent. What is life like in a country that is permanently threatened? How can a normal life be led on the periphery of assassinations and bombing? In a lounge, the exhibition with contemporary Israeli videos unfolds a panorama of strategies for dealing with the conflict. The artists respond to everyday events and historical realities or create visions of the future with humor and respect.

The films allow taking a look at the very personal perspective of young artists who see Israel as their home country and do not give up the hope of peace. Their vehicle is art. Their videos are performative, documentary, theatrical, or use animation and are always authentic very close to the stories that the country writes.

Artists: Nir Evron, Dor Guez, Shahar Marcus, Sharon Paz, Nitzan Shahar, Amir Yatziv, Tamir Zadok, Itay Zvi

In the context of jazzahead! Curated by Susanne Hinrichs.
