Roee Rosen

_
Roee Rosen is an artist, a filmmaker and writer. His work often provocatively juxtaposes politics and erotics, facts and fiction. One of his fictive personae, the Jewish Belgian surrealist painter and pornographer Justine Frank was, according to some theorists, a practitioner of Frankism, an extreme offshoot of Sabbatean mysticism. Working as Frank for a decade Rosen’s projects entailed her entire oeuvre, a film, and a book, Sweet Sweat (Sternberg Press, 2009). Rosen’s latest book is Live and Die as Eva Braun and Other Intimate Stories (Sternberg Press, 2017). His most recent film, The Dust Channel (2016), was shown in Documenta 14. A cinematic retrospective of Rosen is forthcoming in Jeu de paume, Paris, in November, 2018. Rosen is a professor a tHa’Midrasha Art College, and at the Bezalel Art Academy, both in Israel.
