Using sign language from different regions of the world, Tamara Moyzes and Shlomi Yaffe explore in this video work the iconic and sometimes grotesque world of visual stereotypes. Depicting signs for words like Jew, Palestinian, Gypsy from different countries, they provide us with a platform to critically discuss our own, oftentimes unconscious assumptions about the Other.
THE ARTISTS WILL BE PRESENT
The Opening will start at 7 p.m. with a cordial reception, and followed by a discussion with the artists. The exhibition will be shown from 13 until 21 November 2013. Pls call in advance for visits.
