Published by Booklyn. Edited by Janna Dyk, Gabriela Vainsencher. Translated by Mostafa Ouajjani, Gabriela Vainsencher.
Shortlisted for the Paris-Photo/ Aperture First Book Award, A House Without a Roof considers the overlapping histories of violence and displacement connecting Europe, Israel and Palestine. With photographs, archival imagery and original texts, Brooklyn-based artist Adam Golfer weaves together fictions of his family history with representations from Israelís founding and ongoing military occupation. Ethnic and national identities are ruptured and reassembled as he interrogates contradictory histories and notions of selfhood, exploring strands that connect the Jewish Diaspora out of Europe and forced mass migrations from Palestine following World War II. Golfer situates this inquiry through the triangular relationship between his grandfather (a survivor of Dachau), his father (who lived on a kibbutz in the early 1970s) and himself.
