Trap and Snare: Omer Fast's 'Nostalgia'

by Brenda Goldstein

Fuse, 2010, v. 33, no. 1, pp. 41-43

Toronto artist Brenda Goldstein thoughtfully reviews Israeli-born, Berlin-based Omer Fast's show Nostalgia at the Hamburger Bahnhoff Museum of Contemporary Art. The show is a trilogy of videos, each elaborating on the theme of a snare or a trap as a method of describing the process of retelling the details that make up historical events; particularly tragic ones.
