Ron Amir: Doing Time in Holot
Edited by Noam Gal
Israeli artist Ron Amir's works expose complex social situations that tend to be outside our field of vision. From 2014 to 2016, Amir photographed African refugees living in the Holot Detention Center in the Negev, and this important project of politically involved photography was the subject of his first stand-alone exhibition at the Israel Museum.
The publication accompanying the exhibition presents a collection of Amir’s photographs and an analysis of his work by curator Noam Gal, while texts by Reut Michaeli of the Hotline for Refugees and Migrants in Israel and by the eminent social-cultural anthropologist Arjun Appadurai extend the discussion to address the project’s national and global aspects.
