Omer Krieger (*1975, Tel Aviv, Israel) creates performative actions, political situations and civil choreographies in public space. He explores the contrast between public experience and the performance of the nation state and is interested in the relationships between art, citizenship, politics and action. His work Amphi (2020) can be seen in the exhibition Noa Eshkol. No Time to Dance.

Inspired by Noa Eshkol’s performance to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1953, Omer Krieger collaborated with Ruti Sela and Mor Bashan, the Chamber Dance Group, who recreated the movements of the 1953 ceremonial performance. In a conversation, the artist talks about the collaboration and his engagement with the work of Noa Eshkol. He also provides insights into his work and the development of his artistic concepts.
