My (Alt) Neuland
"Altneuland", the groundbreaking work published in 1902 by Theodor Herzl, the visionary creator of the State of Israel, is an almost premonitory manifesto illustrating a secular and democratic political vision of a state for the Jewish people in the Land of Israel, emphasising the value of an open, inclusive and tolerant society. For six months, the Jewish Museum is hosting 'My (Alt) Neuland', a reflection that 10 Israeli artists carry out through their art on the vision of Israel today, taking into account the current delicate and complex political order. On display are works with different techniques and perspectives, following a path that aims to be an explanatory mosaic of how Israel is today, and how it could be. The exhibition is a section of "Shades of Israel", together with those at the Fondazione Pino Pascali in Polignano and at the Castello Svevo in Trani, in collaboration with Pugliapromozione, curated by Fiammetta Martegani and includes works by Paul Curran, Alon Gaash, Dina Goldstein, Colette Leinman, Noa Klagsbald, Lenore Misrachi Coen, Tamara Moyal, Ruth Noam, Addam Yekutieli. Videoart and music soundscape: 'Theodor' by Israeli Opera of Tel Aviv.
The exhibition can be visited until 3 March 2024: from Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 8.30 pm, and on Sundays from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm.
A visit to the exhibition is included in the museum entrance fee. Tickets: 9 euro.
