The Burried Alive Videos, 2013

Roee Rosen

For nearly 30 years, Israeli-American painter, writer and filmmaker Roee Rosen has developed a singular body of work combining fictional characters and autobiographical fiction, cross-fertilisation of iconographic and literary traditions (from the lives of saints and martyrs in the medieval The Golden Legend to children’s books, German Romanticism, Surrealism and Nazi symbols) and a critical look at contemporary Israeli policy.

After a screening of her film The Buried Alive Videos (2013), he discusses a theme that has been present in his work from the outset: the animation of objects with powerful symbolic, psychological and political value.
