In 1997, at the Israel Museum, artist Roee Rosen showed a work so provocative a number of Israeli parliamentary figures called for its immediate closure. Live and Die as Eva Braun – a series of paintings intimately depicting Hitler’s lovers’ final days – has since travelled the world to critical acclaim, cementing Rosen’s position as one of Israel’s foremost (or at least its most provocative) contemporary artists…
Rosen’s installation – a series of challenging paintings, illustrative in style, hung on purpose-built stacks made in collaboration with architect Kuehn Malvezzi – is now on show at London gallery Iniva, alongside another of the artist’s works, Out, a socio-political, 34-minute-long documentary exploring sado-masochism and exorcism, at times scandalously graphic. Rosen’s work is not for the faint-hearted – it can’t really be described as being “nice”, especially not in subject matter – but it is nevertheless important in helping us understand contemporary politics, both in Israel and throughout the world.
