Richard Bell is a renowned artist, activist and provocateur. Bell’s Embassy is a re-staging of Australia’s longest standing protest action, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy which has stood opposite Parliament House in Canberra from 1972 to the present day. Since 2013, Bell’s Embassy has hosted gatherings of talks, poetry and screenings on the topic of Aboriginal sovereignty in cities including Moscow, Jakarta, and Arnhem. For the Jerusalem Show VIII the iconic signage of the Tent Embassy has been translated into Arabic in a gesture of solidarity.
