Tzion Abraham Hazan, Rational Syncing
Tzion Abraham Hazan’s video-performance is a manipulation of speeches of Tel Aviv’s mayor, Ron Huldai. The speeches that deal with various local political issues are collected from documentations of city council meetings, which were uploaded to YouTube. Wearing a self designed mask, the anonymous hacker- hero activates the politician like a puppet on a string, although at times it is unclear who is manipulating whom.
Tzion is a 4th year student at Hamidrasha school of Art, Beit Berl College. Recently he exhibited works in Shift Festival for electronic arts in Basel, in the Israeli institute for Digital Art in Holon, and in Museo Laboratorio di Arte Contemporanea, Universit’a Sapienza di Roma.
Neta Weiner and Yonatan Kunda- Guided Tour
A guided tour among childhood alleyways and hidden architectural jams, between picturesque streets and historic junctions. Together we will sail from the realms of nostalgia towards the crumbling future. We shall end with a collective dipping into the obis of our subconscious, with a beautiful view of the sunset.
* Based on the performance “Al Hatel” which debuted at 8 degrees festival, Klipa theater.
