Graduates of the Department of Industrial Design are among the finalists in the Arte Laguna Prize competition
The Arte Laguna Prize, which was founded in Venice in 2006, is an international prize for contemporary art and design and one of the most influential visual arts and design competitions in the world. Aimed at supporting and promoting creativity, it has established a network of international partnerships in order to offer artists and designers concrete opportunities to develop and advance their professional careers.
Each year, 120 finalists are selected by an international jury out of over 10,000 applications. The finalists exhibit their works in one of the most renowned locations in the art world, the Arsenale Nord, a sixteenth-century venue in the heart of Venice.
Two projects by graduates of the Department of Industrial Design are among the 11 finalists in the "Design Art" category, selected from among 20,000 applications and 240 finalists from all categories: “DEBUG yourself” by Nitzotz Saranga and “KAFCAFE” by 2018 Bezalel Incubator participants Nitzotz Saranga, Ohad Kabri and Talia Okev.
