Jewish Papercutting Traditions workshop with Iso Setel
21 January 2024 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm EST
Save the date! Filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist Iso Setel (https://isosetel.com, on Instagram @setelmakes; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) will be offering an introduction over Zoom to some of the rich history and present of Jewish papercutting. Iso’s work “utilizes moving images to address questions of visibility, sense and memory.” A recent work of Iso’s is the small book, Eruv: Queer Installations of Jewish Space, which “examines the ways in which eruvin function as queer objects, dissolving distinctions between the public and the private, and reconditioning spatial relations. Eruv collages together text, photography, and paper-cut maps to articulate how eruvin might be utilized as ritual technology in projects of queer liberation and community formation.” Iso Setel currently lives between Montréal/Tio’ta:ke and Rochester, New York.
