Ofri Cnaani and Three Acts of Betrayal

Galapagos Art Space presents
Three Acts of Betrayal
A New Performance-Lecture by
Ofri Cnaani + Hadas Cohen
Saturday April 2nd at 5:00 P.M.

“Terrorists’ whore”, “She is full with self-hatred”, “Such garbage should be executed!!!” – Mata Hari, La Melincha, Rosa Luxemburg and Tali Fahima – will be in the center of a new piece looking at women who used their bodies to perform national treason.

Cnaani and Cohen ask what happens when one stops being loyal to their country? What happens when the traitor is a woman – a traitress? How are traitors judged by the state and by the court of public opinion? What spectacle is formed through the punishment?

Three Acts of Betrayal is presented in conjunction with Six Points Ofri Cnaani’s exhibition, The Sota Project, on view at Kunsthalle Galapagos through April 23rd.  In Three Acts of Betrayal, artists combine live cinema various technologies of interrogation and entertainment to ask how and why we relate to political violence via technological mediation.
