Our mission is to distribute and archive works of time-based art. Each issue highlights artists working in new or experimental media, whose works are best documented in video or sound.

Roee Rosen

Roee Rosen (b. 1963) is an Israeli-American artist, writer and filmmaker. He teaches art and theory at the Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem, among other places. Rosen’s painting and text installation, Live and Die as Eva Braun (1995-1997) stirred a political scandal when first exhibited at the Israel Museum. Later, Linda Nochlin wrote in Artforum: “…The experience of Live and Die, both textual and visual, is unforgettable, like nothing else.”

Rosen dedicated years to his fictive feminine persona, the Jewish-Belgian Surrealist painter and pornographer Justine Frank. The project culminated in Frank’s retrospective (Herzliya Museum, 2003; Extra-City, Antwerp, 2009), a short film entitled Two Women and a Man (special mention, Oberhausen film festival, 2005), and a book, Justine Frank, Sweet Sweat , recently published in English (Sternberg Press, 2009).

Rosen latest film project, The Confessions of Roee Rosen (2008), consists of three short films, and an hour long feature. Confessions premiered at the FIDMarseille last year, where it won a special mention, and was later shown at Manifesta 7 and elsewhere.
