Family Files
Contemporary Photography and Video Art from Israel

Sixteen artists, sixteen families, sixteen “family” photo albums

The artists who took are taking part in the exhibition have captured family relationships for posterity with the help of series of photographs. Some reconstruct a family; others invent one: wishes, memories, pain and joy. According to the artists, a photo as a work of art allows them to create a narrative about a whole range of healthy or longed for family relationships. Each of them embarks on a private journey and analyses the notion of the “family album” from a different perspective.
