Adam Golfer: A House Without a Roof, Solo Art Exhibition
Jul 10, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Booklyn is pleased to present the solo-exhibition of artist Adam Golfer’s recent work in film, photography, text, and collected archival material.
Golfer’s family history – its memories, objects, and mythologies – becomes material for taking stock in the divergent iterations of global narratives.
A House Without a Roof concerns the strands of history connecting the Jewish Diaspora out of Europe and forced mass migrations from Palestine following WWII with the creation of the State of Israel. The book associated with the exhibition loosely traces the triangular relationship between Golfer’s grandfather – a survivor of Dachau, his father – who lived on a kibbutz in the early 1970s, and the artist – caught between the membrane of histories that turned the oppressed into oppressors and residents into refugees. A House Without a Roof negotiates the splintered narratives of war and displacement between Europe, Israel/Palestine, and the United States.
