My research examines art collectives in relation to social and political changes in Israel, as well in relation to similar worldwide socially engaged art. It aims to contribute to the understanding of the socio-political potential of art. From a local perspective, my research aims to contribute to the development of a theoretical framework through which to read Israeli art from social and political perspectives, with emphasis on historical and current moments in which art, politics, and social change intersect.
