The Sound of Now: Israel’s Musical Response to a National Tragedy

Sunday, June 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Since October 7th the Israeli music scene has been mourning, grappling, responding, creating and supporting. How are the radio stations thinking about the music choices? What kinds of realities are reflected in Israeli music in the months since then? In this session we’ll listen to and analize 6 songs from the past months to learn about the voices of different communities and explore the tapestry of reactions and sentiments that exist in contemporary Israel.

Artist and educator artist Shirel Horovitz, creates performances and installations exploring cities, communities and the relations between people and space.  She earned her BFA from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, and her MA from the interdisciplinary art program in Tel Aviv University. Her works were exhibited in museums and galleries in Israel and the US.  She is recipient of the Rabinovich prize 2018 and the Weismann art grant for 2023. A new series of her drawings are part of a new exhibition at ANU museum and she is currently working on new sculptures in her studio in Tel Aviv. Alongside her art practice, Shirel teaches art, lectures and creates educational programs and is the creative director of CSP.
