Field Hospital X was established to research and implement ways in which art can address social ills.

FHX is a modular, adjustable, and pluralistic space committed to serving the community. It delivers care and empathy in a thought-provoking manner, aiming to inspire individuals to take responsibility and bring about change in their immediate environment.

FHX represented Israel at the Venice Art Biennale in 2019. Due to its success and the positive reactions of visitors, it was registered as an NGO in Israel. Over the past years, FHX has provided a safe space for visitors to practice and explore tolerance and empathy. The various care areas and facilities of the hospital were planned and designed using artistic tools to create a unique setting where storytelling can penetrate the protective walls of the soul.

FHX’s Experience and Development Center opened in March 2024 at the Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences, University of Haifa.

To date, FHX has been visited by approximately 90,000 people in Israel and around the world.
