Yael Bartana

If You Will It, It Is Not A Dream


The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Yael Bartana. Wenn Ihr wollt, ist es kein Traum' at the Secession in Vienna, Austria. Bartana addresses the spirits of two pioneers, Sigmund Freud and Theodor Herzl, who, in different approaches, sought to bring redemption to the individual and to the collective – and whom she declares the spiritual gods of the 'Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland' (JRMiP), which she founded in 2007. The publication includes the protocols of the congress of the JRMiP, as well as images from the congress and from the installation at the Secession.
