Biography

Yael Bartana (Hebrew: יעל ברתנא‎; born 1970, Kfar Yehezkel, Israel) is an Israeli artist working in film, installation and photography. Her work investigates "the imagery of identity and the politics of memory." She is perhaps best known for the film trilogy And Europe Will Be Stunned, which premiered at the Polish pavilion of the 2011 Venice Biennale and explores notions of identity and nationalism inherent to the right of return. She is based in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Tel Aviv.
