Omer Fast at Postmasters: a video art exhibit explores misrepresentation in documentary film

by Jessica Ostrower

Art in America, Oct. 2003, v. 91, no. 10, p. 126

A review of Israeli-born Omer Fast’s first New York solo show in which he presented a pair of documentary-style videos. The works deal with issues of the Israeli military and the Holocaust industry. He also uses these issues to address questions of the postmodern preoccupation with the misrepresentation inherent to documentary film and the fluid nature of history.
