(Not) time for love. Stories of Holocaust survivors

Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center presents an exhibition“(Not) time for love. Stories of the Holocaust survivors.

The exhibition combines the work of famous artists exploring the experience of the Holocaust, and contemporary Israeli art. At the exhibition, you can see the works of the French artist Christian Boltansky, the Polish sculptor Miroslav Balka, the graphics of former prisoners of concentration camps Esther Schönfeld, Ilka Gedo, as well as installations by contemporary Israeli artists Sigalit Landau, Tal Shokhat, Michal Rovner, Lee Janor, Rami Ather, Mosha Kashi, Nelly Agassi and others.

The project brings together eleven love stories telling about weddings and dates in the ghetto, forbidden gifts, mutual care, dreams of a house and their own land. The exhibition “(Not) Time for Love” is an attempt to explore the role of the modern museum in the development of a culture of memory. How to turn collective recall into a spontaneous and sacred act? What role does contemporary art play in affirming the value of individual experiences of genocide victims? How to transform the Holocaust memorial ritual into empathy?
