Fifty, seventy, or even hundred years later. Moreover, </br> constantly framed as  one-of-a-kind, it might also never grow out of its prescribed borders, its own  comfort zone. </br></br> Overwhelmed by the continuously repeating clichs of  a strong, brave and special friendship, the live fabrication </br> of visual encounters attempts to charge this so called one-of-a-kind-relationship with both personal and collective </br> new meanings, to challenge its borders. </br></br> By cutting and pasting <i>past</i> into <i>present</i>, replacing <i>here</i> with <i>there</i> and conflicting between <i>them</i> and <i>us</i>, a series </br> of imaginary images is constructed from historical as well as contemporary found photographs. The growing </br> exhibition "Hundred Years of German-Israeli Relations" takes us through a journey in which time and space </br> are flexible and the final destination remains unknown.</br></br></br> <img border=0 src="encounters02.jpg" style="width:380px; height:253px" alt="en/COUNTERs"/> </br></br> <img border=0 src="encounters05.jpg" style="width:380px; height:253px" alt="en/COUNTERs"/> </br></br> <img border=0 src="encounters01.jpg" style="width:380px; height:253px" alt="en/COUNTERs"/> </br></br> <img border=0 src="encounters04.jpg" style="width:380px; height:253px" alt="en/COUNTERs"/> </br></br><br/> This project was developed in the framework of <b> en/COUNTERs</b>, on the occasion of fifty years to the </br> Israeli-German diplomatic relations.</br></br> </p> <p style="font-family:tahoma; font-size:10px; color:grey"> Installation photos by Janna Athena Pinsker </p> </br></br> </div> </body> </html>
