As part of the project, every evening on London & Kirshenbaum news show, a news story made by video artists will be broadcast on TV. The reports will cover a range of topics currently on the public, political, social, economic, and cultural agenda of Israel and its capital city. For this unique broadcast, the project invited leading video artists to slip into the shoes of a news reporter, stretch them out and adjust them to their own foot-size, their world view and their personal creative experience.
Nir Evron's news story "Taking a Role" documents the Nachal Raviv Habitation Center- the "Tent City".
