ALUM: TAMAR LATZMAN AT DUMBO ART FESTIVAL

With wry humor, Tamar Latzman explores the nature of memory — real and fictional — by recalling five dreams in two different modes.Making use of themes derived from the twentieth-century Jewish-European history, the piece raises questions of identity, collective memory, and cultural stereotypes. Chapters in order of appearance: Memory of a nose, Baader-Meinhof, Cutting a mustache, Tempting Joseph, and Cooking dinner for Adolf.
