Who Comes After Us? is a multidisciplinary event inspired by and in the spirit of Uri Katzenstein, and marks the thirtieth anniversary of his death. Katzenstein was a radical artist whose work was typified by unique, uncompromising connections between performance, sound, video, and sculpture. In his work he frequently engages with essence of human existence in the world, the anomalies within it, and the presence of the body, its wounds, and its distortions. Katzenstein repeatedly pushed the boundaries of medium, and paved new ways for numerous artists who came after him. He was a friend of the Center for Digital Art from its very beginnings, he founded Radio Halas at the Center (https://halas.am), and was a valuable partner in many of its projects.

The event seeks to create a community of artists continuing in his spirit, and to constitute an annual gathering place for artists working between media boundaries and on the experimental forefront. It includes performances, and performance, sound, video, and mixed media works by various artists, as well as early works by Katzenstein, which will be shown for the first time in forty years. We will also be launching the Uri Katzenstein Award, and an album of his sound works.

 “Who comes after us?” is posed as an open question to the artists and the audience, and as an invitation to engage with the change and evolution of human life, with the possibility of imagining new realms, and to experiment and push boundaries. This echoes French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, who in 1991 asked scholars and philosophers “Who comes after the subject?” This question attempted to capture a key moment in Continental Philosophy, what is known as “Death of the Subject” in the postmodernism of the mid-twentieth century. Thirty years later, the present project invites broad thinking about a potential change in the meaning of being human in the present and future, given the changes humanity has been undergoing in recent decades; changes stemming from ecological, social, and political crises coupled with rapid technological developments, connection to digital spaces, and changing perceptions of human life, such as post-humanism that imagines a changing or substituted humanity arising from global and local contexts. These issues occupied Katzenstein in many of his works, and influenced how he sought to address a future community.

18:00-22:00

Tal Rosen

Split Ends // Performance

Human hair collected from hair salons over several months, spread like a carpet in a small room. On the carpet of hair, a man and a woman sit on chairs. The man braids the woman’s hair into a long braid, then unbraids it, and re-braids it. The work presents the relative abjection of human hair once it has been detached from the scalp, compared to the excitement and admiration it evokes when it is groomed and put on display on a person’s head.

Participants: Tal Rosen, Tamar Landsberg Yakerevich


18:30-19:30

Shaul Kohn // Performance

Bleedbox // Performance

A needle bleeds out an immanent flow of radio waves. The waves in themselves are unheard, only when they are shed through a receiver they become audible, they become an image. A singular event will take place, the bleedbox encounters Doctor Mouth-Bleed - Amir Givon.

19:30-20:00

Nimrod Gershoni


Synthetic Passage // Performance

Live performance in a setting that is something between a television studio and a makeshift home space. A synthesis of sound and video is woven before the audience, and emerges as an abstract meditative expression into a reflexive melodic work.
