Hadas Tapouchi’s Residency (ISR)

Hadas worked on her on going, photographic project Transforming concerning the Holocaust of Amari and forced labour in the area during WWII. “The concept behind Transforming is to document … social transformation and the manner in which an historical catastrophe can become normalized or neutralized. The objective is to encourage observers to integrate their own historical knowledge into an everyday-oriented perspective and sensibilize them to the process of normalization, where experiences of violence are hidden or ignored and eventually re-absorbed and neutralized in everyday life. (…) History is at the centre of Tapouchi’s work but not as an abstract goal in itself, rather as an instrument to understand contemporary reality.”
