Yael Bartana: And Europe Will Be Stunned
The Polish Trilogy
"And Europe Will Be Stunned" brings together for the first time the compelling trilogy of films made by Yael Bartana in Warsaw in Poland between 2007 and 2011. The same year, Bartana became the first non-national to exhibit in the Polish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale.
Revolving around the activities of the Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland, a group that calls for the return of three million Jews to Poland, Bartana’s films traverse a landscape scarred by the histories of competing nationalisms and nightmares across Europe and the Middle East.
An extensive sequence of colour stills from the three films - "Mary Koszmary" (Nightmares), "Mur i Wieża" (Wall and Tower), and "Zamach" (Assassination) - is accompanied by transcriptions of the speeches in the films.
Essays by Joanna Mytkowska, Director of the Warsaw Museum of Modern Art; Boris Groys, Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies at New York University; Jacqueline Rose, Professor of English at Queen Mary, University of London; and Adi Ophir and Ariella Azoulay, political philosophers from Tel Aviv University attest to the provocative power of Bartana’s Polish trilogy.
