Sunday, 11 November, 7 PM, Yaffo23.
Free entry!

A panel of artists-activists discussing the merging strategies of contemporary art and political action. The panel will present two international art groups: GROUP ETCETERA… (from Argentina and Chile) and FEMEN (from Ukraine).
The groups will discuss their artistic practices, which relate to the complex political and social climate in their home countries. Their unique strategies could provide a set of tools through which one can consider the political and social conditions in Israel and the artistic strategies that can respond to it.

Inna Shevchenko, from FEMEN, will join via a live skype conversation. Femen are known for their new interpretation of modern feminism. They use the naked body as an active instrument in confronting institutions of patriarchy.

The conference will be moderated by Tamara Moyzes (from the Czech Republic); a political artist, curator and a filmmaker.

The conference is part of “Middle East Europe exhibition“.
Partners: European Culture Foundation, Representative Office of the Czech Republic in Ramallah, Mamuta at the Daniela Passal Art Media Center, Artport Tel Aviv
