The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University invites you to join us online to see artist 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.

Studio Israel is a new series, chaired by Caron Tabb, that gives an insider’s view of Israeli society through an array of contemporary creative female voices of diverse Israeli backgrounds. Each one-hour conversation features art and expertise that shed light on important social, cultural and political issues in Israel today.

The series is a collaboration between Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, Jewish Arts Collaborative and Schusterman Center for Israel Studies. It is made possible with generous support from CJP Arts & Culture.
