About Omer Fast
Omer Fast (b. 1972) is an Israeli living in Berlin. He works primarily with video. For the past few years he has investigated important historical events from earlier and more recent times in his works. Fast works with these events in his filmic tales, where he challenges linear chronological sequences and re-creates the course of events, thus creating new meanings. In several works Fast thematizes current hostilities with narratives that are at once very moving, confrontational and thought-provoking.
