Studio Israel: Conversation Series

Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies Brandeis University

This series brings together leaders across artforms and backgrounds to understand how Israeli art represents the swath of cultural opportunities and challenges that face Israel currently. With a focus on female artists of diverse Israeli backgrounds, we’ll dive deep into what Israel is today. The December 10th session presents Vered Nissim in conversation with Dr. Sivan Rajuan Shtang. Vered Nissim is an Israeli based visual artist, mostly focused on photography and video installations. The home and family sphere is her primary source material, showing an insider point of view on immigration, social mobility, and capitalist myths, in particular ones that relate to the perception of femininity. Dr. Sivan Rajuan Shtang is a visual culture scholar interested in the various modes of intersection between the axis of race, class, gender, and sexuality in Israeli and Zionist art and visual culture.

Presented by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, and the Jewish Arts Collaborative.

This is the first in a 3-part series. The next events will take place on Thursday, February 11, 2021 and Thursday, April 8, 2021.
