The project ‘Déjà vu, Watch Out Jew!’ involves dressing up and performing a variety of personas that comment on my family’s history, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and my concern with the continuing presence of anti-Semitism.
The project consists of 7 video works:
Some of these pieces have been created as a response to my parents’ repeated stories of their war time experiences. Other pieces have been created as an interruption of current political ideologies that I perceive as displaying dangerous racial biases. All of the works are interconnected.
Together they serve as a visual caution on the dangers of prejudice.
