Public Movement is a performative research body which investigates and stages political actions in public spaces. It studies and creates public choreographies, forms of social order, overt and covert rituals. Since it was established, Public Movement has explored the regulations, forces, agents, and policies, formations of identity and systems of ritual which govern the dynamics of public life and public space. The group was founded in December 2006 by Omer Krieger and Dana Yahalomi, the latter assumed sole leadership in 2011.
