RACHEL LIBESKIND

Rachel Libeskind collaborates with Wildpalms. Constantly producing new works and shows.

She explores socio-political topics relevant to our contemporary society, but at the same time analyzing their historical roots and developments – whether it be e.g. fundamental religious topics or the role of the female figure within different societal structures.

With a critical eye and courage, she gets the bottom of these topics and expresses this in a very poetic manner through verious artistic media, such as collage, tapestry, sculpture, books and performance.
