Shimon Attie: The Neighbor Next Door
During the 1990s American artist Shimon Attie presented a series of temporary installations in European cities that dealt with absence and legacies of the Holocaust.
For The Neighbor Next Door (1995), Attie projected archival film footage from World War II onto Amsterdam sidewalks. The films, which had been taken by people driven into hiding by the Nazis, suggested what life on the street might have looked like to someone living clandestinely.
In 1995 the artist Shimon Attie projected films taken during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam onto the streets of the city. Two decades later you will encounter these archival images, shot secretly by people who had been driven into hiding, in an installation evoking the experience of watching from a confined space.
*The exhibition will not be on view from December 10 through January 10.
