Publisher's Description

A House Without a Roof scrutinizes the histories of violence and displacement connecting Europe, Israel, and Palestine. With photographs, appropriated imagery, and texts, fictions of Golfer's family history are woven together with representations from Israel’s founding and ongoing military occupation of the West Bank. Ethnic and national identities rupture as the project wrestles with contradictory histories and points of view. The narratives in the book are framed via relationships between three generations of men in Golfer's family: his grandfather – a survivor of Dachau, his dad – who lived on a kibbutz in the early 1970s, and Golfer himself. Memory and time fold into one another as the mythologies of Golfer's family become entangled with the ongoing narratives of violence and trauma in Israel and Palestine.
