DUBAI: Israel has decided not to participate in the 2025 Venice Architecture Biennale, with officials from the Ministry of Culture reportedly citing the need to renovate Israel’s pavilion as the reason.

According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the decision has sparked some criticism.

Idit Amihai, the director of the Institute for Israeli Art, said: “This year of all years they have to renovate and decide not to participate by choice? It would be one thing if we weren’t invited. Now when we’re being ostracized is precisely the time for us to take part.”
