Ron Amir: Blurring the lines between art and activism
Date created :
Since mid-September, a new exhibition has been drawing in crowds at Paris's Modern Art Museum. Titled "Somewhere in the Desert" in English, it’s a collection of 30 colour photographs and six videos made by the Israeli photographer Ron Amir between 2014 and 2016. The subject of these works is Israel's Holot refugee camp for mainly illegal Eritrean and Sudanese migrants. Ron Amir joins us to tell us more, along with Noam Gal from the Israel museum in Jerusalem.
