The Absent Body deals with the dialogue between Israeli art and Jewish identity in a contemporary, local context. The concept underlying this book is based on the longstanding understanding that the "body" in Israeli art is never taken for granted, but is rather a constantly elusive presence, demanding to be redefined. The Absent Body brings together members of several different artistic generations and stylistically diverse works and reveals the central conflict at the heart of the secular Israeli experience over four decades of art making.
