Tel Aviv host
Inspiring and challenging talk and performance by artist and architect, Iddo Gruengard
About the speaker
Iddo Gruengard is an interdisciplinary artist: a director, performer artist and an architect.
His mixed media performances use classic text to investigate new narratives. The performances are based on layers of performance, video art and audience participation. The main themes are different subjective perceptions of space, memory, trauma, disability and technology. He initiated and produced a fashion show “Disabled and Sexy” in Tel Aviv, which received huge media coverage and was later echoed in the UK.
He has an MA with merit in Performance Design and Practice from Central Saint Martins in London. With a background as an architect, he also holds a B. Arch from Tel-Aviv University and worked in NY and Israel on a range of architectural projects.
Iddo is 39 years old, married to Michal and has 2 children, Raya and Hanan. Born in Tel-Aviv, he had a motorcycle accident in India in 1998, which left him a paraplegic using a wheelchair.
