The exhibition Chronicle of an Assassination Foretold at MAXXI in Rome is a site-specific project by Amos Gitai, dedicated to the film Rabin, the Last Day (2015) on the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.
On the evening of 4 November 1995, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in Tel Aviv by an Orthodox Jew, who opposed the signing of the Oslo Accords. The film Rabin, the Last Day reconstructs the events leading up to the assassination and exposes new details of the complex political struggles of that period.
The film’s director, Amos Gitai, has created a site-specific installation on the 20 years of research that went into making the film. It includes video, audio and photographs that investigate the themes of democracy and political violence in Israel.
