This course will review the work of artists of Ethiopian origin who are active in the Israeli art field today and analyze the subjects they deal with in their work in relation to the socio-political change in Israel and the increase in Ethiopian representation in popular culture. We will discuss concepts such as socio-political art, activism through art, and a-political art.
