Bio­gra­phie

Nadav Assor’s work explo­res the unsta­ble con­di­ti­on of the hyper media­ted body, the “new fle­sh”, con­stant­ly trans­for­med by tech­no­lo­gy, in its immedia­te social, poli­ti­cal sen­so­ry, and emo­tio­nal envi­ron­ment. His vide­os, instal­la­ti­ons and per­for­man­ces were fea­tured in film fes­ti­vals, muse­ums, gal­le­ries and live venues across North Ame­ri­ca, Euro­pe, and Asia. Assor’s work was review­ed in publi­ca­ti­ons such as Art­fo­rum, the Creators Pro­ject, Vice Mother­board, Art Mon­th­ly UK, and Haaretz.
