The Robert Koch Gallery is pleased to present Shai Kremer: Fallen Empires, an exhibition of large-scale color photographs of Israeli landscapes marked by historical conflicts and empire building. Moving beyond a one-sided view of Israel’s history, Kremer’s photographs explore the layered traces of historical nation building—shattered houses, remnants of corrugated fencing, and abandoned army barracks—as a process of construction and upheaval.
