The person behind the performance that was set up tonight is the artist Itai Zlait. According to the organizers, the purpose of the exhibition is to encourage “swinging” citizens to join the protest against corruption, the collapse of the public and the disconnection of the government from the citizens and “not to let our land of milk and honey become a land that eats its inhabitants.”
This is a performance measuring 9.60 meters by 2.40 meters. Also participating in its preparation: Moran Aharon and Elisheva Engelberg – art and creative, Nohar Binor – cake, Pnina Abramovich – sculpture and makeup, and Liora Zbickler – set design.
Transport Minister Miri Regev (Likud) condemned the performance: “On the eve of Tisha B’Av, there are those who have chosen to ignite more and more hatred and polarization in our people. “The hanging. This is not incitement but a call to action. I call on Ron Huldai to stop closing his eyes and immediately remove the incitement display.”
Four people were arrested. According to videos circulated during the night some of the protesters were attacked by various groups of people.
