Dani Gal // Chanting Down Babylon

In 1992, shortly after its take-off from Schiphol Airport, a freight plane owned by the Israeli company El Al crashed into a residential complex in Bijlmermeer, Amsterdam. Dani Gal (*1975) visited the occupants of the Bijlmermeer district and journalist Vincent Dekker for the purpose of entering into a dialogue with them about the plane crash and reassembled everyday life in the reconstructed building. Based on comprehensive research, following the atmospheres and worlds of subjective memories and experiences, the artist‘s book gives an overview of various occurrences and stories woven into a complex structure of abstract and formal connections.
