We are excited to invite you to our Europe Day celebrations 💃
So excited that we will be celebrating 4 times in 3 different locations, with video art work of talented European and Israeli artists that will be presented on HUGE screens!
So, get ready: the installations will begin after sunset and continue until late at night
Thursday, 17.6 – Eilat Promenade
Saturday, 19.6 – Haifa Turkish Market
Thursday, 24.6 – Habima Square, Tel Aviv
Tuesday, 29.6 – Cameri Square, Tel Aviv
Dozens of works, by some of Europe and Israel’s leading artists, deal with the issue of a post COVID-19 Society
The event is held in cooperation with 17 different cultural institutes and attaches, all supporting an artist taking place in the installation. The partners involved: Embassy of Belgium, The Czech Centre, Embassy of Denmark, Embassy of Germany, Embassy of Estonia, Embassy of Ireland, Embassy of Greece, Embassy of Spain, The French Cultural Institute, The Lithuanian cultural Institute, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, The Austrian Cultural Forum, The Polish Institute, The Romanian Cultural Institute, Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia, Embassy of Finland and Embassy of Sweden.
Each installation will include several screens, showcasing 20 fascinating video art works (1-6 minutes each, and curated by Avi Lubin), all centred around the same topic: the new communities of the world, following the COVID-19 crisis. The artists represent some of Europe and Israel’s finest and most well-respected video artists. Some of the works will be presented for the first time.
After a year of isolation, quarantines and solitude, we are now facing the need to rethink the idea of a community. Permanent changes occurred in our understanding of what it means to live together and physical distancing influenced the way we understand the idea of “being together” both from a distance and in isolation. The works raise questions about our ability to disassemble and reassemble our understanding of terms like being together and being alone and establish new thoughts about how to build a new community following the epidemic.
