Trembling Time: Recent Video From Israel
26 – 28 February 2010

Tate Modern
London SE1 9TG


This programme surveys recent video work from Israel, examining practices that have emerged within a culture marked by the contested spaces of a militarised society and the complex emotions of life on the brink. Artists Yael Bartana, Guy Ben-Ner, and Roee Rosen will present individual focus screenings and discussions of their work.

Additionally, two group screenings focused on both the private and public sphere will include videos by artists including Boaz Arad, Yossi Atia & Itamar Rose, Keren Cytter, Uri Katzenstein, Dana Levy, Shahar Marcus, Roee Menachem Markovich, Avi Mograbi, Miri Segal, Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir, Doron Solomons, Malki Tesler, Lior Waterman & Amit Levinger, Karen Russo and Amir Yatziv.
