    Event Info


    Words, sounds and transmissions by citizens of the Polis

    Speech Act presents aspects of participation in the political sphere, in the context of both the past and present, in the possibilities of speaking and healing, and in being an observer while at the same time being an actor. Through a personal prism of the one who stands behind an action, working with and within language, social structures manifest in the linguistic eco.

    The wide range of work in this show asks the viewer to consider various ways oral and visual communication can foster connections, influence decisions, and motivate change. Multiple languages and multi-cultural locations are featured throughout the exhibition. Languages include Arabic, English, Hebrew, Spanish; locations include Osnabrück, Marseille, United States, Tel-Aviv, Nazareth, Syria, Brooklyn, Egypt, Jaffa, Washington D.C., Jerusalem, and Buenos Aires.
