Tamara Moyzes’ last projects (Artivism) are related to activism and happenings. Moyzes present her strategies concerning her actions in public space and her reaction to actual and social issues, related to the use of media as a tool for political art.
Tamara Moyzes is political engaged and international artist. She produces video art, which is often presented in installation form. She is a political personality and is concerned with themes such as gender, racism, antiziganism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and – as a curator – with Orientalism as well. Her works show a commitment to artistic activism, and she believes that art is a form of pointed protest that should unmask social conditions – not through academic statements, but instead through direct artistic interventions. With the resources of satire and the intensification of lived experience, Moyzes sheds light on social injustice. By virtue of her origins and her life at various locations, Tamara Moyzes works from the perspective of the intersection of minorities, for example of the Jews or of the Roma. In this way, she underscores the urgency of the material she presents to her audience, much of it difficult to absorb.
