Q & A to follow the discussion.

Oded Hirsch (born Kibbutz-Afikim, Israel, lives in New York) works in the mediums of video and photography and is the recent recipient of a Jerome Foundation Film Grant, a Six Points Fellowship and a NYFA Fellowship. He holds an MFA from the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn and is represented by Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York. Two of Hirsch’s films are currently on view at New York City’s World Financial Center Winter Garden. Also, a public art street intervention by Hirsch is featured throughout Fall 2012 in downtown Liverpool, UK, as part of the Liverpool Biennal 2012.

Oded Hirsch makes short films that are based on communal collaborations. For his projects he invites hundreds of people to take an active part in the production and artistic process of his filmic performances. In the past five years he has been working on a film trilogy that depicts intense devotion of settlers in peripheral villages, and who engage in pointless acts of futile toil. These narratives aim to ask questions regarding unconditional ideological conduct and social order. Visit his website at www.odedhirsch.com
