December 22, 2016-April 22, 2017

Location: Rena (Fisch) and Robert Lewin Gallery

Artist: Ron Amir

Curator: Noam Gal

Media: Photography

For the last three years, Ron Amir has photographed and filmed the thousands of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum-seekers in Israel’s Holot Detention Facility. Amir’s singular documentary style reaches new heights with this project, which drew him into the asylumseekers’ daily life and thus reveals a reality that is usually hidden from the public eye.
