Contemporary Art & Community: Ideology? Or a reality call?
Artist’s movements or groups are not a new concept; as in art history artists always gathered around an ideology or an idea.
Jerusalem’s Art scene has a very unique social structure – most of the contemporary art galleries are not commercial and relay on community artistic activity. Along with the galleries other new exiting forms of associations grew form the holly land, and they are making wonderful art.
In this tour we will meet with some of the avant-garde collective art scene in Jerusalem; places where art is made and exhibited. We will try to understand if there is a place for art-community values in a capitalist and materialistic society? And what makes Jerusalem the perfect arena for collective art activity?
