Lincoln 16 - Lincoln 16, Tel Aviv,
On the eve of Holocaust Victims ‘and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, Wednesday, 11.4.2018 at 19:30 we will all meet for an evening of memory in the living room – Zikaron BaSalon.
In the first part of the evening we will listen to testimony from the representative of the third generation, Shiran Dolev, the granddaughter of Holocaust survivor Jacob Kesselbrenner, born in Lokov, Poland, who heard the story of Jacob moving to help the partisans in the forest. After the Holocaust, Yaakov z “l made sure to go to their graves, preserve and spread the heritage of the Holocaust and the memory of his family, and impart the tradition to his family as well.
The extended Kasselbrner family holds commemorative events, accompanied by delegations to Poland, maintains close contact with the local authorities in Poland and devotes itself to the will of grandfather Jacob to remember, to remind and not to forget.
~ In the second part of the evening, the lecture: Holocaust Representations in Israeli Art with Shiral Horowitz, an artist and researcher dealing with the connections between image, narrative and space.
The manner in which the symbols, colors and shapes that are usually the scenery accompanying the action of memory, move to the foreground and become raw material in the hands of the artists. At the end of the 1930s we will begin with artists who experienced the horror of their own flesh and tried to give it a visual expression. We will continue through the Eichmann trial to this day and examine the various ways in which the Holocaust acquires visibility and form. This is a historical, visual, critical view of the way we “paint” the Holocaust, the politics of images, and the possibility of art breaking through routine blindness.
>>> We will start at 19:30 – the public is asked to be precise.
