And Europe Will Be Stunned, Israeli artist Yael Bartana's powerful and challenging trilogy of films made in Poland between 2007 and 2011.

And Europe Will Be Stunned revolves around the activ­i­ties of the Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland (JRMiP), a polit­i­cal group that calls for the return of 3,300,000 Jews to the land of their fore­fa­thers. The films tra­verse a land­scape scarred by the his­to­ries of com­pet­ing nation­alisms and mil­i­tarisms, over­flow­ing with the nar­ra­tives of the Israeli set­tle­ment move­ment, Zionist dreams, anti-Semitism, the Holocaust and the Palestinian right of return. Apart from real­iz­ing the film tril­ogy, a new polit­i­cal move­ment has been estab­lished by the artist.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Fault Lines
