  • CHRONICLE OF AN ASSASSINATION FORETOLD
    June 17, 2016 - September 4, 2016
    BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts
    Rue Ravensteinstraat 23
    1000 Brussels BELGIUM

    In the context of the Summer of Photography 2016, Bozar invites Amos Gitai. His latest film “Rabin, The Last Day” deals with the assassination in Tel-Aviv, on 4 November 1995, of the Israeli Prime Minister, the man behind the Oslo Accords and Nobel Peace Prize, following a major demonstration. The murderer is an extreme right religious Jewish student.Twenty years on, the filmmaker looks back on this traumatic event, putting the assassination back in its political and social context. His years of research stand him in good stead to present an exhibition, Chronicle of an Assassination Foretold, which questions the concepts of democracy and political violence through video installations, archives and photos.

  • The Disasters of war 1800-2014
    May 28, 2014 - October 6, 2014
    Louvre Lens
    Lens, France

    The exhibition presents a rich set of representations arising from disenchantment with war, considered above all as a dealer in misfortunes from the beginning of the 19th century to our own time. Placed until then at the centre of society's values, it increasingly came to be considered by artists in all its facets, including its most dreadful consequences on human beings, on animals, on the countryside, and on cities and things.
    This multidisciplinary exhibition shows the major milestones of this little known history, through all kinds of media: painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, film, video, installations, comic strips, popular prints, newspaper cartoons, and more.
