“The Last Supper”: A new protest performance in Tel Aviv


A protest performance called “The Last Supper” was presented this morning (Wednesday) in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv. At the center of the performance is the figure of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu standing in the center of the table, on which various dishes are served. The inspiration of course comes from the many works on the Last Supper of Christ, the most famous of which is by the painter Leonardo da Vinci.

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.”

The protest against Prime Minister Netanyahu continued last night in Tel Aviv, when the demonstrators, who initially arrived at the home of Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana, later dispersed to various areas in Tel Aviv.

Four people were arrested. According to videos circulated during the night some of the protesters were attacked by various groups of people.
