Bartana's theme is militarization as part of Israel's national
self-understanding. In the video projection "Trembling Time", she deals with
the moment of collective remembrance on the Day of the Fallen Soldier, which
brings all of Israel to a standstill. "Disembodying the National Army Tune"
is an ironic object from the army's repertoire of forms (flagpole
loudspeaker), whose sound intones the heroic military anthem as an awkward
vocal rendition, as every Israeli is necessarily capable of reproducing it
due to military service.

Born 1970, Israel. Lives and works in The Netherlands and Israel
