Michal Baror’s video work, “A Smaller Place,” focuses on the Kabara swamps of the present and past. The project of draining the swamps is connected to the Israeli collective memory of the Hula Swamp, but the Kabara swamps, which are found between the southern slopes of the Carmel to the shore, were the second largest in the country. As part of the ‘land redemption’ (‘geulat hakarka’) project, the Zionist pioneers drained them in the 1920s. The water source that remains from the swamps is the starting point for two points of view: the upper one and one which moves close to the ground. The two perspectives evoke the historical, political and social clash that occurred and are still taking place, the consequences of which have been catastrophe for one community and prosperity and flourishing for another.
