The Department of Special Objects
A comic children’s series documenting one of the most highly confidential places of employment in Israel – the department of special objects, an archive where all the great and important historical objects of the state are kept. A new historical object arrives at the department in each episode, which the department employees have to prepare for exhibition. The department staff is made up of an ensemble of characters, all with a wide giving heart, but all lacking in terms of clarity and logic.
A comic narrative stands at the center of each episode, and the series in effect presents a fun and original way to learn about many central aspects of Israeli history.
