About the Art Work
In GOAL, the artist Noa Klagsbald wants to tell an untold story about Israeli sports and the city of Lod: a story of coexistence, equality and a common striving for victory.
During the project, the artist will collect small, intimate and everyday moments that take place in the locker room of the football team. "Back Stage" will be brought to the front and will present the unique and inspiring human mosaic that takes place in Lod's mixed football team as an example of team cohesion striving for a common victory.
