Presence/ Absence/ Traces. Contemporary Artists on Jewish Warsaw

10 Mar 2016

10 MAR - 25 APR

"What is Jewish identity? What is the identity of Warsaw as a center of Jewish life? What image of the city emerges from collective and individual memory and today's experiences? Who is "from here"?"

The exhibition showcases works by 13 artists-in-residence of POLIN Museum: Luísa Nóbrega, Eliane Esther Bots, Noa Shadur & Konrad Smoleński, Tamara Moyzes & Shlomi Yaffe, Jasmine Bakalarz, Itay Ziv, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Hubert Czerepok, Florencia Levy, Aslı Çavuşoğlu & Simone De Iacobis & Małgorzata Kuciewicz, Lukas Ligeti, Maya Schweizer, and Sharon Lockhart.

Coming from Poland, Israel, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Turkey, and North and South America, the group represents different approaches to Jewish heritage and ways of exploring multiculturalism in Warsaw.
