About me:

Ronni Shendar is an Israeli visual artist and curator, working in the meeting point between new-music, photography, video, stage design and live video performance.

Together with Till Rohmann (aka Glitterbug) she is the co-founder director of the c.sides Festival in Israel, also a label and international platform for electronic music and critical media art, and has been involved in social-political change and cultural production for over 13 years.

Shendar has performed and exhibited in exhibitions and festivals internationally, among them the Jewish Museum Frankfurt and a project for Festival de Cannes. She has toured around the globe with Glitterbug (DE) and Gold Panda (UK), and her videos for various music producers have been aired and screened internationally.

Shendar works solely with her own original footage, materials and photographs, that with live video techniques translate the music to a cinematic language, unfolding layers, textures and landscapes. Her joint A/V live performances with Glitterbug have been acknowledged as a unique and total amalgamation between sound and picture.

Currently based in Berlin.
