Thalia Hoffman (1979, Germany) is a visual artist working in film, video, performance and public interventions. She holds a BA in Humanities from the University of Bar-Ilan, and is an MFA graduate (with honours) in Fine Arts from the University of Haifa, where she is currently teaching. Hoffman is a PhD candidate at the PhDArts, international doctorate programme in The Netherlands. 

 

Hoffman has directed a full length documentary and several short experimental films and is working as an independent film director and editor. In addition Hoffman works and develops social/political change programs using the agent of film and art within different communities. Another way that Hoffman approaches this is through cooking and feeding, both in professional and artistic context. All her work strives to be involved in its surroundings and engage people to look, listen and feel their social/political landscape with attention.

 

Hoffman’s films, video works and performances have been shown in group exhibitions and film-festivals in Israel and around the world.
