Nadav Assor works in a range of audiovisual and tangible media to explore unstable notions of bodies, identities and social interaction as transformed by mediation technologies. He is interested in the hyper-mediated body and its place in intimate, social, and political systems. His work is often realized via lo-fi reenactments of appropriated military-industrial technologies, from eye-tracking to drone surveillance, from street mapping to medical and security screenings.
Assor has performed and exhibited internationally in festivals, music venues, museums and galleries. Some recent venues for his work include Transmediale Festival Berlin, Oberhausen Film Festival, Video Vortex XI at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Hong-Gah Museum Taipei, Arts Santa Monica Barcelona, Hyphen Hub NYC, Edith-Russ-Haus Oldenburg, the European Media Arts Festival, the Soundwave Biennial in San Francisco, Residency Unlimited NYC, Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, the Koffler Center in Toronto, Julie M Gallery Tel Aviv, Currents Santa Fe, and many others. Assor’s work was reviewed in publications such as Artforum, Vice Motherboard, Art Monthly UK, Haaretz, Time Out, the Creators Project and more. He holds a Full Merit Fellowship MFA in Art & Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was also the first awardee of the Edes prize, the graduate school’s highest honor. Assor is a recipient of multiple grants and awards in the US and Israel, and currently serves as an Assistant Professor and an Associate Director of the Center for Arts & Technology at Connecticut College in the US.
