About the director
Roee Rosen is an Israeli-American artist, filmmaker and writer. Rosen’s painting and text installation, Live and Die as Eva Braun (1995-1997), stirred a scandal when first exhibited at the Israel Museum. It was later recognized as groundbreaking in its approach to the representation of the holocaust, and was exhibited in Berlin, New York, London, Warsaw, and, in 2017, in Athens as part of Documenta 14. Rosen dedicated years to his fictive feminine persona, the Jewish-Belgian Surrealist painter and pornographer Justine Frank, a project that entailed fabricating her entire oeuvre as a book, Justine Frank, Sweet Sweat (Sternberg Press) and a short film, Two Women and a Man (2005). The book Maxim Komar-Myshkin, Vladimir's Night was published by Sternberg Press in 2014. Rosen`s films has premiered and shown worldwide, and he also received prizes and has been listed and received special mentions for both his cinematic – and literary works. Several major programs were dedicated to Rosen's cinematic production, amongst them profiles at the Tate Modern, London (2010) and the Museum of Modern Art, Vienna (2014). Rosen has exhibited widely in prominent institutions and has published several books on Sternberg Press. Rosen’s latest film, The Dust Channel (2017) was co-produced by Documenta 14, where it was exhibited along with two historical text and image installations: The Blind Merchant and Live and Die as Eva Braun.
