Born in Jerusalem Israel, Yoav Horesh has exhibited his photographs and interactive work in galleries and museums in Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East. Since 2001, most of Horesh’s work has been dealing with conflict, memory ethnicity and multiculturalism. His projects have taken place in the American Southwest, Germany, Laos, Israel, the Gaza Strip, Bolivia, Vietnam, Mongolia and Cambodia, where history still shapes and influences current events and life.
Since completing his MFA from Columbia University in 2005, Yoav has been teaching art and photography in numerous universities in the United States, Hong Kong, Europe and in Israel. Currently, he is part of the art and design faculty at the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT) and at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
