A film by Asher Tlalim
“‘Galoot’ (‘exile’ in Hebrew) is an intimate and introspective diary that touches the seeds of the pains and tragedies transformed nowadays into the locked Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Following his wife who went to make her PhD in London, Israeli filmmaker Asher de Bentolila Tlalim, who has authoured over forty films, finds himself in temporary exile. This distance provides him with the opportunity to observe the conflict with a new and provocative gaze. Taking “me” as his starting point, the filmmaker conveys a universal message.”
Asher Tlalim, who is living in London, is visiting Jerusalem at the moment and will be present at the screening. We hope to have an interesting discussion after the film.
On Wednesday 22.02 there was an opening of Shachar Sivan and Yotam Koperberg exhibition. Yotam and Shachar were living in Barbur for the whole week and have done a great job.

On Tuesday 14.02 we’ve had the “first” opening of Shachar Sivan’s and Yotam Koperberg’s exhibition. It was rainy and cold outside and really warm in the gallery.
Shachar and Yotam are living in Barbur for six days already and had turned it into their workshop. It is messy and curious.
On Wednesday 22.02 at 20:00 we’ll have the official opening of the show.
Today, 12.02, Shachar Sivan and Yotam Koperberg, artists from Haifa, came to Barbur and started to work on their new show. They have brought a lot of stuff (3(!) full cars) with them from their studio and plan to find and construct a lot of new one. All of us are very curious.
On Tuesday 14.02 at 20:00 we’ll have the first opening of their exhibition. After the event Shachar and Yotam will live and work in the gallery for another week. Then, on 22.02, we’ll have the second opening.
There will be a lot of fun and surprises!
