Militarism as self-evident component of Israeli art

Noa Roei explores the representation of the armed forces in contemporary Israeli arts and visual culture. She especially focuses on the omnipresent and self-evident way in which militarism forms part of Israeli art and visual culture. Militarism is hereby understood as a dynamic condition, characterized by the expansion of a military sphere over the civil one. For her research, Roei analysed the diverse artistic and activist projects which make up or give comment on this phenomenon. By doing so, Roei elucidates the militarised frames which characterize Israeli social and political arguments. She is also interested in the idea of ‘militarism as excess’, and in the ability of visual art to articulate this excess to the public.
