Dr. Tal Ben-Zvi is Vice President for Academic Affairs at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. For the past 15 years, she has worked as curator and scholar of Israeli and Palestinian art. In her work as curator of the Heinrich B?ll Foundation Gallery, Tel Aviv and Hagar Art Gallery, Jaffa, she has generated and promoted a unique, pathbreaking discourse on the work of Palestinian artists, graduates of art schools in Israel. She received the Ministry of Culture Prize for Curatorship and Design in 2008.

Prior to her work at Bezalel Academy, Dr. Ben-Zvi served (among other things) as Head of the School of Arts at Kibbutzim College of Education, Tel Aviv (2009-2012) and as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace, Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2010-2011). She received her Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 2010; her dissertation is titled "Representations of the Nakba in the Palestinian Art of the 1970s and 1980s, as Reflected in the Work of Artists Belonging to the Palestinian Minority in Israel."

"There are artists who identify political art with a kind of leftist political statement, artists like Miki Kratsman, Michal Heiman and David Reeb," says curator Tal Ben-Zvi.

...
Ben-Zvi, who is currently writing a doctoral thesis on Palestinian art, established the Hagar Gallery in Jaffa several years ago, a nonprofit gallery that primarily displayed Palestinian art (and closed in September due to lack of funding).As someone who founded a gallery and focused on artists and works whose subjects are political, she belongs to a second category: to "those who, unlike the former, think that art must be a type of protest, that the artistic act must be political - artists such as Haddad and Arad or Ro'i Rosen and Haim Lusky, who mounted an exhibition in Umm al-Fahm marking 35 years of the occupation and contributed all the proceeds from the sales to Physicians for Human Rights."
Lusky feels so strongly that political art should be much more connected to its circumstances that he refuses to exhibit in museums and galleries.

The exhibition "Story of a Monument: Land Day Sakhneen 1976-2006" is centered on the Sakhneen monument commemorating Land Day, as a space of struggle, remembrance and identity of the Palestinian minority in Israel.

A video installation functioning as a symbolic territory, as a monument for the artist's place of childhood - Kibbutz Kinneret. The basalt rocks that were brought from this mythological kibbutz constitute the framework within which the biographical, familial and kibbutz institutes are dismantled to their components. At the center there is the patriarchal father institute - the male institutes that are capable of organizing, institutionalizing, disciplining and subordinating the artist's life and the public space in which it takes place, as long as he is present in the kibbutz, and as long as he is absent from it. On the other side there is the mother climbing trees, a meaningless or a functional act within the space in which she lives.
The kibbutz, Zionist territory is revealed as a psychoanalytical field of action in which the father institute and the mother figure dominate the territory and mark it. The hunter, subject to functional logic, uses the mother, the father, anything within this territory, to establish his existence, but the eclectic hunting troubles him and he cannot find peace for himself.
