Komponist, Musiker und Musiktherapeut Tal Gur begibt sich mit seiner genreübergreifenden Performance auf eine autobiographische Reise in die traumatische, von Kriegswirren, Tabuisierung und Schweigen geprägte Geschichte seiner eigenen Familie. Gemeinsam mit der Choreographin und Tänzerin Jasmin Avissar, dem Tänzer László Benedek und den Musikern Herbert Könighofer, Hannah Eisendle und Christian Stolz, Tal Gur selbst u.a. ergründet er auf eindrucksvolle Weise Generationen-überspannende Auswirkungen traumatischer Erlebnisse und setzt Kunst als Medium zu deren Auflösung ein.

Die multimediale Performance, die Tanz, Musik, Text und Video-Installationen beinhaltet, rekonstruiert die Geschichte von Tals Großmutter, die, dem Konzentrationslager entflohen, gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann quer durch Europa reist, um schließlich ins damals unter britischem Mandat stehende
Palästina zu fliehen, um dort ein neues Leben aufzubauen.

Basierend auf dem Briefverkehr zwischen seinen Großeltern, der ihre vielschichtigen Charaktere beeindruckend wiedergibt, setzt sich Tal Gur mit den Erfahrungen auseinander, thematisiert die durch das Schweigen entstandenen Brüche in seiner Familie und verwendet Kunst als Mittel zum Überwinden der epigenetisch weitergegebenen Traumata.

In Kooperation mit dem Verein Conflict Zone Arts Asylum – Vienna, unterstützt durch die Media Labor/Akademie der Bildenden Künste, das Österreichische Bundeskanzeleramt: Kunst & Kultur, und dem  Zukunftsfonds der Republik Österreich

Artist Statement
I was born in 1980 in occupied Palestine. Borders, checkpoints and the feeling of being caged has been a constant experience throughout my life and naturally became a main subject of my artistic work.
My personal struggle against borders increased in the past years. My marriage to an Israeli woman emphasized how separated and segregated Palestinians and Israelis are from each other. My personal fight to break those borders and my struggle to leave Palestine has driven me to concentrate on my artistic work, as a tool of communication with my surrounding, to speak out against these forces.
Short C.V
Born in 1980 in Palestine. Studied in Jerusalem carpentry and architectural drawing and stone sculpting with Paul Taylor . June 2014 graduated a master degree in Fine Arts at the Vienna Fine Art Academy in the class of Prof. Heimo Zobernig
