Video Art from Israel, 1970–2012

Staring Back at the Sun: Video Art from Israel, 1970-2012 at Casa do Povo

Staring Back at the Sun highlights work by 35 artists who take an incisive, critical perspective towards the cultural and political landscape in Israel and beyond. Showcasing early performances, films and videos never before presented outside of Israel, the program focuses on the activist impulse in video artmaking in Israel over the last four decades, and explores themes such as the prominence of political conflict in mass media; the liberalization of the economy; and the impact of free market politics on Israeli culture.
