In his works which are strongly influenced by the history and politics of the current day, Omer Fast (*1972 in Jerusalem) scrutinizes the value of experience in society. He often takes actual events or incidents as his starting point, reconstructing them with the aid of research, interviews or found material. In his intensive film installations, mostly all multi-channel works, history is rendered as ultimately being an intangible fusion of memory and fiction, facts and imagination.
Fast studied at Tufts University – School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and at Hunter College in New York. He lives and works in Berlin.
