At the Carnegie International, Yael Bartana showed Summer Camp (2007), a video about a summer camp coordinated by the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions in 2006, in which Palestinians, Israelis, and other nationalities worked together to build a house in the village of Anata, destroyed by the Israeli Authorities as part of the withdrawal from the Palestinian territories in 2005. This heroic but ultimately futile example of cooperation and dissent is interspersed with footage from an abridged version of Awodah, a 1935 Zionist film encouraging European Jews to relocate to Palestine. In combination, the films suggest the repetitive irony of history and the shifting connotations of symbols and rhetoric over time and place. Bartana was one of 35 artists from 19 countries selected by the curatorial team of Daniel Baumann, Dan Byers, and Tina Kukielski. Other artists in the show included Frances Stark, Henry Taylor, and the Bidoun Library. Summer Camp was shown in a specially designed temporary theater opposite the museum’s grand staircase.
