The Reality of Roadblocks, Israel, 2002

video art

The reality of roadblocks. A maze from which one cannot escape.

Miki Karzman chose to film a route of roadblocks from within a vehicle in motion. On the radio are reports, songs, news, interviews.

Routine. Outside is a different routine. A routine viewed through the window. Continuous, normative carryings on, that occur in various spaces and at various times. Day, night, twilight.

Seven hours of routine filmed over a period of one year.
