Tel-Aviv flora & fauna #3

“You can’t discuss ice with a summer insect” – Zhuangzi


Orr Sinai – Double Bass
Shaul Kohan – Acoustic Guitar
Tom Soloveitzik – Saxophones

“In the last couple of months I have regularly met with Orr and Shaul in a quiet rectangular room, out of a desire to deepen the practice of playing and listening together. Splits, repetitions, silences and shifts: these are some of the things that floated in space between us. Imagine a rectangle in a rectangle, one urban landscape inside another, a bow on a bridge. This is the first meeting of this group in Barbur.” Tom Soloveitzik

The Jerusalem Municipality again intervenes in the gallery’s activities


Today, Thursday, 12.4.2018, at 13:00 there will be a hearing in the Shalom Court concerning the Municipality’s claim to prevent an open meeting and discussion on the upcoming Memorial Day ceremony in Tel Aviv next week.

Barbur Gallery finds itself again at the center of the political struggles of Nir Barkat and Miri Regev.
The gallery operates in a certified building and all activities are conducted by law. The municipality’s arguments are fraught with errors and contradictions, and the repeated demands to intervene in the content severely undermine the possibility of expressing and hearing diverse and controversial opinions, and constitute a grave meeting of freedom of speech and democracy.
Despite the threats, we will continue to act within the framework of the law and for an open, inclusive and tolerant dialogue.

Open meeting of the Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum and Combatants for Peace Movement


Thursday 12.4 at 20:00

Joint Memorial Ceremony – Why on this particular day?

The Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum and the Combatants for Peace movement invite you to an open discussion for the ceremony. You are invited to come and ask us questions about the ceremony and tell us what you feel about it.

Will there be families of terrorists there?
How can we compare them?
Why this day?
Do not you think it’s a disgrace to Memorial Day?

For the past decade, a special ceremony took place on the eve of Memorial Day, in which Israeli and Palestinian bereaved families choose to remember their loved ones together and demand a solution to the conflict that will prevent further bloodshed.
Over the years, more and more Israelis and Palestinians joined these families and the 200 people who attended the first ceremony grew to nearly 5,000 who attended the ceremony last year
Together with the increase in the number of participants, the joint ceremony is becoming more and more common to Israeli public discourse and is arousing a lively debate about the existence of such a ceremony on the eve of Memorial Day.

We are proud of the ceremony and have nothing to hide about it, and it is very important for us to hear what you think face to face and not just through a keyboard. Therefore, we would be especially pleased if those of you who do not agree with our path will come to the meeting.
The meeting will include representatives of bereaved families – we want to maintain a respectful and tolerant discourse.

Screening of the movie by Neta Shoshani

Born in Deir Yassin


Israel, France 2017 | 63 minutes | Hebrew | Hebrew subtitles 

There is no access to Deir Yassin.

The first Arab village to be conquered in ‘48 has been fenced off when the government’s ‘Kfar Shaul’ mental hospital was founded on it in ’51. This film tells the metamorphosis account of that piece of land. Dror get to Kfar Shaul to receive his mother’s records. While he is trying to unveil the secrets of his past the filmmakers try to reveal the secrets of their founding fathers. For the first time they talk – the Lehi and Irgun fighters that occupied the village, the Haganna spies that were sent after them and the Gadna youth that buried the corpses. Through their memories the complete Israeli narrative of the Deir Yassin conquest is exposed.
