Join us for a conversation with Israeli artist Eitan Buganim to mark the opening of his virtual exhibition. The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University presents Buganim in his first-ever U.S. exhibition. “The Orientalist” is a virtual video art installation, presented online for the first time, and curated by Dr. Rotem Rozental. The exhibition will launch with a live conversation with Buganim and Dr. Rozental.

Conflating desires, miracles, magic and impending catastrophes, “The Orientalist” is composed of four short videos in full synchronization, arranged at exactly the same rate, with each crop, angle change or dramatic action happening simultaneously. The soundtrack for each video is a popular “Oriental” (Mizrahi) Israeli song from the 1980s and 1990s, before this music genre broke into the mainstream. The identical structure attempts to trace the rhythm and melody for each song, highlighting the emotional and social meanings of both the scenes unraveling on screen and the accompanying music.
