  • Biography

    Joseph Dadoune was born in 1975 in Nice, France. Dadoune has participated in numerous group exhibitions locally and abroad. In Israel, he has exhibited two solo shows at the Petach Tikva Museum of Art (The cinematic trilogy Sion in 2007, and the recent exhibition Ofakim, 2012). He also had solos exhibitions at the Le Plateau Contemporary Art Center, Paris; at Galerie Martine Aboucaya, Paris; at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Nice; at the Museum of Modern Art, Strasbourg; and at the Film Museum, Düsseldorf. He has also collaborated with the Louvre Museum, and the haute couture designer Christian Lacroix in the framework of his cinematic projects.

    Dadoune’s films portray an ongoing odyssey between mental realms and various geographical realms in Israel and Europe, between childhood landscapes of Ofakim and Mediterranean vistas, between Negev landscapes and spheres of sanctity, and between East and West. They explore fundamental and critical zones in contemporary reality as they deal with the issues of borderline, centre/periphery, multiculturalism, Judaism/Christianity, post-colonialism and with identity and gender issues.

    His work is carried out in multiple channels: artistic practice, an empowerment project for youth, initiation of pedagogical programs, and collaboration with architects Tzvi Efrat, former Head of the Department of Architecture at the Bezalel Academy, Efrat-Kowalsky architects, Meira Kowalsky and Doron Von Beider to promote a multicultural architecture.
