Yael Bartana and Dani Gal: Hammer Screenings at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles

Yael Bartana, Still from Mur i Weiza (Wall and Tower), 2009
Polish artist and Holocaust survivor Alina Szapocznikow often reflected on the ephemeral condition of human life in her work. This program at the Hammer Museum presents the work of two contemporary filmmakers who provide context to her experiences. In Dani Gal’s Nacht und Nebel (Night and Fog, 2011, 22 min.), policemen transport the ashes of notorious Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Yael Bartana explores an imaginary world in which Polish Jews form a fictional Jewish Renaissance Movement in her Polish Trilogy: Mary Koszmary (Nightmares, 2007, 11 min.); Mur i Wie˙za (Wall and Tower, 2009, 15 min.); and Zamach (Assassination, 2011, 35 min).

In conjunction with the exhibition Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone,1955–1972.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.
