Ha’Pzura is an International event presented by the Israeli Center for Digital Art focused on the production and presentation of experimental music and sound projects. It includes an exhibition, concert series, sound intervention series and radio station being launched for sound art, experimental music, and art enthusiasts.

Hapzura begins on 13.12.2007 with an exhibition opening of “Works in Translation” curated by Eyal Danon & Galit Eilat, at the Israeli Center for Digital Art at 19:00 and is followed by a performance by Mouse on Mars at Holon’s Sports Stadium on the same evening at 21:30.

The exhibition “Works in Translation” deals with the space between source text and translation where language falters — in the silences and intervals, the facial expressions and paces of breathing and in the places where we are at a loss for words. Through this exhibition we ask whether and how language expresses that which is impossible to express and pass on. In these artworks language is stripped to its foundations, it is broken down into notes, syllables, words- into the raw form of sound where lies the form of language, which is in itself also an avenue to communication. The exhibition presents works by Romy Achituv, Marcus Coates, Adriana Garcia Galan, Eva Koch, Imogen Stidworthy, Artur Zmijewski, and a special project by Yossi Marhaim and Michal Naaman.

A program of sound interventions will be occurring in the city center of Holon. Interventions offer urban play, altered navigation, and the familiar made unfamiliar in the streets, passageways, shops and gymnasiums of the city. Artists include Cathy van Eck, Edwin van der Heide, Jetzke de Boer, Lior Weinstein, Michal Rothchild, Michal Rinott, Roee Ben Sira, Marcus Coates, Maya Dunietz,Ariel Efraim Ashbel, Public Movement, Tikva Morowati & David Hindman & Spencer Kiser, Uri Katzenstein, Yael Davids, Josef Sprintzak, Ori Drumer.

The experimental music concert series features International and Israeli musicians from the fields of free jazz, electronica, and improvisation. Performances are concentrated over two weekends at Tel Aviv’s Levontin 7, Hazira in Jerusalem and The Israeli Center for Digital Art in Holon and feature new collaborations between visiting and local musicians. Participants include Mouse on Mars, Faust, Bloodstereo, Peter Brotzmann Trio, Eddie Prevost & John Butcher, Eran Sachs, Musica Genera, Keir Nueringer, Machinefabreik, Malox, Philip Jeck, Quintet’s Quartets, Seventeen Migs of Spring & O.B.E.Y, Igor Krutogolov Trio, TV Buddhas, Taapet, Arik Shapira, Dora Doll & Alex Drool, Panda Porn, Ariel Shibolet, Gal & Maurin.

The Israeli Center for Digital Art is a dynamic platform for thinking, researching, producing, and presenting contemporary art, as well as providing a meeting point for exchange between contemporary artists, curators, critics and the public. The center is a non-profit organization established in 2001 which devotes a significant part of its work on art projects that foster questions about identity, ethnicity, nationalism and cultural exchange. It initiates partnerships and collaborations with individuals and other institutions in the Middle East and the Balkan region in an effort to explore how creative communities from different peripheries of the world can connect, learn from each other, and break down nationalistic or regional barriers. The activities of the center are concentrated in five main areas: The video archive & mobile archive, public presentations, residency program, education program and publications.
