2018 – <em>Strangeness</em>, Raida Adon

Raida Adon (b.1972), the daughter of an Arab mother and a Jewish father, is an actress, performance artist and filmmaker. This video installation from the Israel Museum addresses the alienation many feel, whether as refugees, newcomers or survivors of a disaster. While the artist herself personifies issues of identity so prevalent in Israeli society, the work conveys a universal message.
