No place like home

The exhibition incorporates a wide variety of visual works by artists who emigrated from the former USSR as children, and address migration from the perspective of a longing for childhood memories.

It’s never easy getting a new cultural venue off the ground, especially not in this country where state support for the arts tends towards the minuscule end of the national budget scale. Artistic directors of fledgling ventures talk about establishing “a new tradition.” That is, of course, a chronological anomaly, but you get their hopeful drift.

So, kudos to Jerusalem Biennale founder Rami Ozeri as we approach the third edition of the event, which will take place October 1 to November 16. The third Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art, to give it its full titular due, will showcase the work of close to 200 artists, Israeli and foreign alike, in dozens of exhibitions and installations at eight venues around the city. Biennale shows regularly feed off some central theme, which inform all the works on display. This time round the topical baseline is the concept of watershed.
