"Homelands" explores artists’ reflections on one of the defining, watershed moments of the last century: the disbanding of Jewish communities throughout the Muslim world. The Islamic world, once host to many thriving Jewish communities and over a million Jews, today holds less than 30,000 Jewish people. The 2,000 year heritage of these communities were changed forever. The exhibit seeks to present this issue from both a personal and communal perspective, utilizing work that relates to this event on multiple levels.
Venue: Bezeq Building
