Israeli Zvi Gotheiner grew up in Kibbutz Messilot on the slopes of Mount Gilboa, where King David cursed the land with no rain or dew in his biblical mourning elegy to his beloved Jonathan. Droughts, water shortage and the need for water conservation were powerful tensions in Gotheiner’s early years, epitomized by the government’s slogan “Every Drop Counts.” Later, Gotheiner would learn the significant role water, or lack thereof, played into the war politics of the region.
This year 4 million people in Cape Town, South Africa will stand in line surrounded by armed guards to collect drinking water. And in Mexico City, many of the 21 million residents will only have running water part of the day… and these are only 2 examples for a growing global trend of water shortage.
To bring awareness to such man-made devastation, Gotheiner will anchor his artistic investigation to his personal experience.
