Over the past decade, Addam Yekutieli/Know Hope has developed a visual iconography and language mirroring real-life situations and observations to express the notion of a collective human struggle.

By creating parallels between political situations and emotional conditions, the artist portrays the political process and dialogue as an emotional mechanism, making it comprehensible intuitively rather than solely intellectually.

These portrayals take place both indoors and outdoors, in the form of site-specific installations, murals and assemblages, combining ready-made materials, mixed media pieces, photographs and text.

By placing these works in public spaces, Know Hope attempts to overcome the separation between the emotional and the political, and to allow viewers to see themselves in the larger context of their surroundings by simple mutual acknowledgment.

Yekutieli has worked and exhibited internationally and has projects and exhibitions planned in London and Tel Aviv.


In den letzten Jahren hat Addam Yekutieli/Know Hope eine visuelle Ikonographie und Bildsprache ent-wickelt, mit der er reale Lebens-situationen spiegelt und beobachtet, um schließlich den Kampf der menschlichen Gesell-schaft zu dokumentieren.

Durch die Erschaffung von Parallelen zwischen politischen Situationen und emotionalen Lebensumständen, versucht der Künstler den politischen Prozess als einen emotionalen Mechanismus wahrzunehmen, der ebendiesen Prozess begreifbar macht und eine intuitive Beteiligung ermöglicht, die nicht mehr ausschließlich intellektuell erfolgen muss.

Diese Vorgänge finden sowohl im Innenraum als auch im Außenraum statt – unter Anderem in Form von Installationen, Wandbildern und Assemblagen aus vorgefundenen Materialien, verschiedenen Medien, Fotografien und Texten.

Know Hope versucht durch die Platzierung seiner Arbeiten im öffentlichen Raum die Trennung von Emotionalem und Politischem aufzuheben und erlaubt es dem Betrachter, sich selbst in dem größeren Kontext seiner Umgebung wahrzunehmen – in einfachster Weise, durch gegenseitige Anerkennung.

Addam Yekutieli arbeitet international und hat Projekte und Ausstellungen in London und Tel Aviv durchgeführt.
