Weekly Highlights in Jerusalem’s Contemporary Art Scene
Gallery Talk: Manifesto |A tour-de-force multi-screen film installation, Manifesto draws on the somewhat anachronistic literary form of manifestos – declarations of belief usually combined with a call for action. Artist Julian Rosefeldt revisited dozens of 20th-century manifestos, examining their relevance and power today and blending foundational texts of art movements including Dada, Surrealism, and Futurism to create thirteen new texts written as monologues. Gallery Talk with curator Mira Lapidot. Tuesday, September 10, 19:00 at The Israel Museum, Ruppin Blvd. 12 (in Hebrew, entrance ticket required). For more info, click here.
