Artists at Work: Tali Keren and Allard van Hoorn
For Artists at Work, Tali Keren will present two recent projects that investigate the interaction of religion, politics and military technology. Heat Signature (2018) examines infrared vision and The Great Seal (2017) is an interactive installation that invites viewers to engage with the lure of political populism. Both works examine the historical and contemporary imbrication of “Judeo-Christian” identity in American politics and American involvement in Israel/Palestine and the Middle East-at-large.
Allard van Hoorn will discuss recent developments in his work Urban Songlines, an ongoing utopian/dystopian series of collaborative translations of buildings, urban structures and public spaces into music through site-specific sound-generation. These performances allow listeners to connect to places, and the ways we use and experience the public domain.
