Public Movement was founded in December 2006 by Dana Yahalomi and Omer Krieger. Yahalomi became the sole director of the group in 2011.

For the last 13 years, Public Movement has explored the regulations, policies, and formations of identity which govern the dynamics of public life and public space. In 2018 Public Movement presented its first solo exhibition in Italy, Temporary Orders, at the Vistamarestudio gallery, Milan. In the same year the group performed The Interview in several art institutions around Israel. In 2017 they performed Rescue in the European Capital of Culture, Aarhus. In 2016 Public Movement presented Debriefing Session II and Choreographies of Power in the Guggenheim Museum, New York.

In 2015 the group’s solo exhibition, National Collection, took place at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and in the same year the book Solution 263: Double Agent, written by Alhena Katsof and Dana Yahalomi, was published by Sternberg Press.
