Untaken Photographs


Participants: Boaz Arad, B'tselem, Aïm Deüelle Lüski, David Eldan (GPO), Dor Guez, Miki Kratsman, Beno Rotenberg (Ginzach), Efrat Shalem.


Massacres, expulsion, murder, rape, torture – so many historical events where cameras were not present, where photographs were not taken.
The exhibition will deal with untaken photographs of various types of violence. Through six photographic projects, the exhibition will invoke the question what can be seen when a photograph has not been taken? In one way or another, all the photographs included in the exhibition replace untaken photographs.
The exhibition will show 6 photographic “essays” composed of photos that were produced or read in research of the untaken photographs. Miki Kratsman and Boaz Arad take “landscape photographs” of sites where massacres took place in 1948 in Palestine. Efrat Shalem takes photos of houses where women were murdered. Dor Guez takes photos of ruins of Palestinian habitats in al-Lid in that were destroyed in 1948. B'tselem members took photographs of torture techniques staged to illustrate (following) testimonies of palestinians who have been subjected to torture. Aïm Deüelle Lüski uses the particular cameras that he produces – North-West-South-East camera or the Wooden Clay - camera for his “pilgrimage” to various site in Tel Aviv where the memory of the past persist through its urban erasure. Finally, Beno Rotenberg's and David Eldan's photographs from Al-Ramle will be read as the setting for the abandonment of women in time of war.
