Israeli artists up in arms over culture minister remarks

Israeli artists and leading cultural figures gathered Sunday to try and consolidate an approach against Culture Minister Miri Regev’s declared intent to withdraw support from institutes that “delegitimize” Israel, a move critics say would amount to censorship. Hundreds of cultural icons crammed into a performance venue in Jaffa, south of Tel Aviv, to discuss a joint response after Regev sparked a furore last week when she threatened to defund a theatre managed by an Arab Israeli if he refused to perform in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The debate was also fired up by Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s recent decision to overrule a professional committee and pull an Arab play from a state-funded educational programme.
