Berlin sagt Danke



31 January 16



Within Berlin sagt Danke, KW Institute for Contemporary Art invites to visit the video installation by Michael Helfman on January 31, 2016.

Running Out of History (2016) is a new video work by Israeli artist Michal Helfman. It features two sets of dialogs that revolve around the activist G., an Israeli woman who is the founder and head of an NGO which provides humanitarian aid to populations in crisis. During the last four years the NGO has been smuggling humanitarian aid to the besieged population in Syria. Helfman’s work examines the concept of smuggling as both a concrete activist tool and as a metaphor for the artistic act, which constantly traces alternative paths within existing orders.
