Gilad Ratman, “Still Buzzing”, The Book Club, London
Still Buzzing captures the vibrancy of the Tel Aviv art scene.
The event will reveal a fascinating phenomenon of contemporary Tel Aviv artists who trace their Jewish origins and identity through their thought-provoking, original work.
Major themes including cultural identity, ceremony, collective memory, history and family tradition will be explored through eight video works of these established artists:
Dafna Shalom, Shuli Nachshon, Tali Navon, Yifat Laist-Ferman, Boaz Arad, Gilad Ratman and Noam Edry.
Featuring an exclusive Q&A with the artists Gilad Ratman, Tali Navon and Shuli Nachson.
Followed by music from DJ Kojak, playing a specially created set of world, Arabic and hip hop beats.
