Yael Bartana‚Äôs films, installations, and photographs explore the imagery of identity and the politics of memory. Her starting point is the national consciousness propagated by her native country, Israel. Central to her work are ceremonies, public rituals, and social diversions that are intended to reaffirm the collective identity of the national state. In her Israeli projects, Bartana dealt with the impact of war, military rituals and a sense of threat on every-day life.
