Roee Rosen (b. 1963) is an Israeli-American artist, filmmaker and writer. Rosen is a professor at Ha'Midrasha Art College, and at the Bezalel Art Academy, both in Israel.

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 well as a book and a short film, Two Women and a Man (2005).

Several major programs were dedicated to Rosen's cinematic production, amongst them profiles at the Tate Modern, London (2010), the Museum of Modern Art, Vienna (2014), the Oberhausen International short film festival (2012), and comprehensive retrospectives at La Roche-sur-yon film festival (2013), and FICUNAM Festival, Mexico City (2018). One person mid-career survey exhibitions of the artist were held in the Rotyal Castle (Zamek), in Warsaw (2010), Tel Aviv Museum (2016), the Edith Russ House for Media Art, Oldenburg (2016), Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2019) The Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2019), among others. In 2018 an expansive one person exhibition was held at Centre Pompidou, Paris, entitled Histoires dans le pénombre.

Rosen is currently working on a feature-length film entitled Kafka For Kids. The latest short film he released, Explaining the Law to Kwame (premiere: FIDMarseille; FNAC and Flash awards, 2020), is a part of that project.

Workshop "Computer Vision" with Coralie Vogelaar

© Coralie Vogelaar

In cooperation with the Communication School, Univserity of Kassel
September 29th 2020, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., in English.

In this workshop we will try to view the world of the image in a new way. We will be focussing on alienating ourselves from our usual perception and try to see through the eyes of the machine. We will investigate and collectively map out emotional responses to technology and their behavioural implications and will try different intuitive research methods that promote the production of associative and subconscious ideas but also reflect on them. As a cooperation between the Graduate School for Moving Image and the Communication School of Graduate Academy, Amsterdam-based artist Coralie Vogelaar will conduct a workshop that invites participants from both scientific and artistic backgrounds to discuss different notions of research. Collectively they will exchange on the field of „computer vision" using a variety of open source tools to examine image recognition, emotion tracking and others.

About The Communication School:
The Communication School is a summer school open to Kassel university students (MA, doc, post-doc). In times of Fake News and raising mistrust towards science, Science Communication has become essential and an inherent part of scientific practice. The one-week training programme of the Communication School supports participants to develop their skills in Science Communication and enables them to become Science Communicators. /// uni-kassel.de/einrichtungen/en/graduate-academy/further-education/communication-school.html

About the lecturer:
Coralie Vogelaar is an Amsterdam-based visual artist. In her ongoing research, she explores the areas where technology and humans meet, the interaction between the two and ways in which they influence each other. Her work consist of systematically conducted studies how computers see humans and their activity, and works with deep learning, eye & emotion tracking, and image recognition software. Both her background and interest are interdisciplinary, and she works together with (data)scientists, creative coders, actors, dancers and choreographers. Recent exhibitions were in ZKM - Karlsruhe, Veem House for Performance, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Kunstverein Kassel, Science gallery Dublin, Impakt Festival Utrecht, UnArt Museum Shanghai, Noorderlicht Festival, Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, MU Artspace, V2 - lab for the unstable media, FOMU - Antwerp, SPRING Festival Utrecht and Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen. She currently is doing a residency at TU Eindhoven Innovation Lab
