Union of the Israeli Artists

Years: 2008 to 2016

From the early 2000s, when an active union for artists in Israel began to take shape, I was only partially involved in its activities. A short time after I exhibited The Pyramid Game, the union’s board of directors decided to resign in protest at the miniscule financial support provided by the Ministry of Culture. Board member Varda Givoli asked me to create a new board of directors, “or else seven years of activity would go down the drain.” I felt I had no choice but to accept the challenge, and to try to improve the position of the artists through the union.
