But if you like this it means that you are open minded, and you are available to new ideas, and you are one step ahead of your generation…" With a self-absorbed naturalness the words pour out of the mouth of the art critic that artist Tamy Ben-Tor portrays in her video The End of Art.
Tamy Ben-Tor is a video and performance artist. The holocaust and its denial are frequent themes of her performances. In the Village Voice, Jerry Saltz explained how “the Holocaust is alive in Ben-Tor’s raw, awkward, cutting work. It isn’t confined to a set of academic gestures or hackneyed responses.”
