HAIFA 1955 - CARRARA 2011

 

     

 

Ronit came from afar. Her existence lay within an ancient, rooted history, marked by diversely dramatic past and present, the story of the Jewish people. 

She graduated in 1978 in Art, Design and Teaching at the Institute for Teachers of Art (HaMidrasha) in Tel Aviv, after a long period of political militancy in Israel side by side with students and teaching staff of the University of Birzeit (Palestine). In 1984 she was awarded a study grant in Paris which allowed her to leave Israel and realize her need to affirm the meaning of her life as a woman, in a cosmopolitan existence open to art, history, and European and world politics.

Both during her stay in Paris and subsequently in Italy, where she went to live in 1987, Ronit always maintained her links to her native country, through unbroken communication with friends, artists and active intellectuals. A convinced pacifist, she denounced in a clear and courageous way the progressive Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory and oppression and killing of Palestinians.[...]
