The Neighbor Next Door

Sept. 11, 2015-Jan. 10, 2016
Boca Raton Museum of Art

The Neighbor Next Door by Shimon Attie presents a visceral interpretation of the experiences of those driven into hiding by the Nazi regime as was the family of Anne Frank in Amsterdam. Attie has created immersive multimedia art that reflects on the relationship between place, memory, and identity. The installation is Attie’s re-envisioning of a site-specific work he first presented in Amsterdam in 1995 where he projected films taken in secret by people forced into seclusion by the Nazi occupation onto the street every night for two weeks.
