Tali Keren is a multidisciplinary artist and educator born in Jerusalem and based in Brooklyn. Her performances, videos, and installations center on the formation of political ideology, historical mythologies, and the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism. Through poetic interventions into archival sources, legislative documents, and the creation of immersive documentary installations, Keren seeks to unsettle foundational national myths. Her practice is grounded in collaboration, cross-disciplinary dialogue, and experimental pedagogy as a way to forge new forms of collectivity and political imaginaries.
