Tel Aviv – Jerusalem Diaries is a book made up of two books. The first is the diary of a journey embarked upon in the spring of 2018 by the artist Keren Cytter and the art critic Antonio Grulli. Destination: Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the capitals of an exceptional and anomalous country. It’s a diary written in two voices, in which text and imagery together weave a fabric of recollections and reflections that go far beyond the journey. For Keren Cytter, it’s a return to the land where she grew up but where she has not lived for some time; for Antonio Grulli it’s the discovery of places imagined for a long time and which provide the input for a range of considerations on Israel, Europe and art. The second book within the book is the screenplay of the film Des Trous (The Holes), the work that Cytter created during the journey in Israel. The film is closely linked to the artist’s recent life experiences: a mix of autobiography and fiction intertwining detachment and melancholy, contrasting feelings towards that universe of relations that no longer belongs to her in the same way.
