Roee Rosen is an artist, film director and writer.
A man of extraordinary culture, he makes masterly use of intellectual provocation in his work, in part by assuming morally ambiguous positions and paradoxical points of view.
Sexuality intertwined with politics, the question of Israel and an attentive observation of historical and social dynamics pervade his work, which is infused with irony and a vitriolic criticality.
The heart of Roee Rosen’s action lies in way he mixes visual art, literature and cinema to produce complex narrations somewhere between reality and make-believe, risky and provocative mystifications.
