Biography

Yaacov Agam



Born in Israel, studied art in Jerusalem and then in Paris. His first Paris show opened at the Craven Gallery in 1953 with works consisting exclusively of kinetic, movable and changeable art. He is internationally recognized as a pioneer in the field of kinetic art.

In the Main Library, he conceptualizes his work as reading the pages of a book. His aim is to have the spectator actively participate in the formation of the artwork, which evolves with changes in physical perspective.
