The mechanism of silencing begins with the muting of personal voices and stories, and reaches even the platforms through which they may become heard. This roundtable will include three speakers: Shiraz Grinbaum, a photographer, book editor, and a member and curator of the Activestills Collective; Ilana Hammerman, an academic, writer of documentary books, literary studies, and memoirs, and the founder of the Women’s Civil Disobedience Group; Masha Zusman, an artist and co-founder of Barbur Gallery in Jerusalem. Moderated by Ilit Azoulay, whose solo exhibition “Regarding Silences” is currently on view at the Center, the three aforementioned speakers will share their experiences of being silenced. They will also discuss the phenomenon of second generation PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) victims of the Yom Kippur war.
The event will be held in Hebrew.
