Meir (Miro) Gal is an artist who lives and works in New York. He left Israel in 1981 and settled in New York City in 1987. His photographs, installations, and interventions challenge the cultural, historical, political, and militaristic nature of the Israeli state. In Gal's work, the myths that have shaped Israeli identity, perceptions, and memory are interrogated and often demolished, and the body politic's dangerous internalization of the state's explicit military ethos is exposed.
