Nadav Assor

Nadav Assor employs a range of expanded media practices to explore the unstable condition of the hyper mediated body, the “new flesh”, constantly transformed by technology, in its immediate social, political sensory, and emotional environment. This is often done via lo-fi reenactments of appropriated military-industrial technologies, examining technological mediation as an essential and transformative human condition. Since 2006, Assor has performed and exhibited internationally in festivals, music venues, museums and galleries in North America, Israel, Europe and Asia. Some recent venues for his work include Hong-Gah Museum Taipei, Centre Arts Santa Monica Barcelona, Hyphen Hub NYC, Edith-Russ-Haus Oldenburg, Transmediale Festival Berlin, the European Media Arts Festival, the Soundwave Biennial San Francisco, Residency Unlimited NYC, Spectrum NYC, Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, the Koffler Center in Toronto, Julie M Gallery Tel Aviv, Xuzhou Museum, China, and many others. Assor’s work was reviewed in publications such as Haaretz, Time Out, the Creators Project, Vice Motherboard, Art Monthly UK, and more. His recent solo show “Angels”, featuring a prayer-chanting hexacopter and other drone-based work, was an Artforum Critic’s Pick for July 2014. He holds an MFA in Art & Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2010, full merit fellow), where he was an inaugural recipient of the Edes Award, the graduate school’s highest honor. He is the recipient of multiple grants and awards in the US and Israel, and currently serves as an Assistant Professor at Connecticut College in the US. See more of my work at Nadassor.net.
