Dov Or-Ner – “Bad Renro”
Artist Book Release
Monday October 25th, at 20:00 at The Center for Contemporary Art
“Bad Renro” Hakibbutz Hameuchad Publishing House Ltd. Red Line Series Series Editor: Giora Rosen Book Editor: Tali Tamir Texts: Moshe Zuckermann, Liav Mizrahi, Tali Tamir Design: The League
The book was made possible by the support of the Israel Lottery Council for the Arts
Or-Ner’s artist- book – “Bad Renro” – presents a series of drawings composed of zerox and hand-drawing. Obsessively drawn throughout the last two years, Or-Ner provokes the ultimate icon – the portrait of Hitler. Or-Ner, born in Paris, 1927, was a child during the war. He is known for his artistic-political line of work, including the “Museum of Museums”‘ relating to the Lebanon War. At the age of 80 he returns to drawing, to paper, and to the defining experience of his European childhood – which left him with the feeling of a pervasive, irrational world. Bad Renro – Or Ner himself, dressed to resemble Hitler – is an intriguing image of the victim and oppressor entwined. 3 videos of Or Ner with the Renro figure will be screened during the evening.
Speakers: Uzi Shavit, Giora Rozen, Moshe Zuckermann, Tali Tamir, Liav Mizravi, and the artist.
