Seven Photographic Journeys
29th March until 1st September 2019
ISREALITIES presents seven photographic journeys. Philippe Halsman, David Seymour, called CHIM, Erich Hartmann, Micha Bar-Am, Patrick Zachmann, Thomas Dworzak, and Oded Balilty give us a tour through the British Mandate for Palestine, guiding us through the founding of the Jewish State to present-day Israel. We participate in kibbutz life and the festivities of Independence Day, we witness the Six-Day War of 1967 and the peace demonstrations of the turn of the millennium. We see what the artists saw and how they saw it. Literary quotes accompanying the photographs form out of individual observations a mosaic of an emerging society.
The exhibition is supported by the Society for the Jewish Museum of Switzerland.
