works Hot Line, 2014 Michal gavish & Zeina Barakeh multi-channel, site-specific sound installation In Hot Line, Gavish and Barakeh each compile audio testimonies of people who have experienced hardship as a result of political oppression or war. Narratives contributed by participants within the artists’ respective communities offer a snapshot at fragmented histories, and are unaltered by the two artists who worked in the role of archivists. These narratives relate to the Vietnam War; the Dirty War in Argentina; the Holocaust; martial law in Poland; the Lebanese Civil War; and the Iranian Revolution to name a few.
