On Monday, September 18 we’ve started a series of group meetings of Critical Reading and Research.
The workshop will be conducted by Niv Hachlili and will try to look at the texts around us and figure out how and what we can learn from them. What is a research project, how to conduct it, what can it be used for and in what sense does it pertain to our lives? Can independent communal platforms exist? Where does the individual fit within the system? What are his weaknesses and where does his strength lie?
Next meeting will take place in a two weeks on Monday, October 2.
New Exhibition: Without Prior Notice
Without Prior Notice – the artists of “fifth year” (Kalisher School of Art) in Barbur Gallery
In three months we will be putting up a collection of solo exhibitions in the Ramat Gan Museum. After a year of intensive work as a group in the framework of advanced studies. So why the urgency? Why invest precious time in an action that seems a distraction from the important issue? Without prior notice and out of context? Like a Freudian slip of the tongue?
The request to exhibit without prior notice entails coming with no preparations, no prior plans, without strategic thinking, without definitions of the group identity. One day: we had to come as we are, only the works. Therefore the works
that from the “content” point of view range from nostalgic to apocalyptic inspired in us – after the fact, of course, after putting up the works – surprisingly a feeling of suggested intimacy, of something personal, small, and exposed.
Without prior notice, therefore without many words.

Screening Eran Tutbiner’s film:
Madrid Before Hanita
The movie tells the story of 300 jews from Palestine that volunteered for the Red Brigades during the Spanish Civil War in the years 1936-1939. The movie is a rare documentation of volunteers from this country who put the universal values of Democracy at the top of their priorities as they joined the international struggle against Fascism and who were willing to give their lives for this cause.
The movie features interviews with the last remaining volunteers still alive and combines personal accounts and letters by those who died in the struggle. The movie was made during 2002-2006 in Israel, Spain, France and Germany and features much archival footage from Israel and Spain.

On Tuesday, August 1 there was an opening of a new exhibition in Barbur.
The name of the exhibition is “I love you” and it was organized as a part of World Pride 2006 Events that will take place next week in Jerusalem.
The initiative of the exhibition originally came from the Jerusalem Open House and we in Barbur decided to invite students, studying in the city, to send us their propositions and to participate in the organization of the show. Open invitation was sent to different art and photography schools and colleges and we tried to find proper place to every idea that we’ve got from the students.
Participating in the exhibition:
Dadi Elias, Guy Yitzhaki, Lior Man, Nimrod Bar-On, Sivan Gross, Elyashiv Levine, Roey Heifetz, Ron Ben-Gida, Niro Taub, David Amoyal, Yarden Bar
