An extensive study of the character of current art in Israel, this well-illustrated catalogue surveys paintings, sculptures, mixed-media pieces and photographs by 21 artists whose works, variously utilizing the vocabularies of Neo-Expressionism, Minimalism and Post-Modernism, frequently reflect the political and social issues facing the Israeli state. In addition to individual discussions of the featured artists, the catalogue includes eight essays examining their complex artistic and cultural context, the prevalence of death imagery in works of the 1980s, and the Wandering Jew as a theme in 20th-century art.
