WESTEND [catalogue to exhibition at the Museum on the Seam]

£25.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Lavish exhibition catalogue in English and Hebrew. In VGC. card folding cover, spine unbroken. Colour illustrations of art works.
Westend – A Clash of Civilizations and a Battle for Domination in the World of Tomorrow.” For Etgar, “West End” does not refer to the theater district in London, but to the conflict between Islam and the West, first brought to public attention by Samuel Huntington’s best-selling 1996 book, “Clash of Civilizations.”

The Museum on the Seam, also known as the Baramki House after its original owner, is a socio-political contemporary art museum located in Jerusalem. The museum, in its unique way, presents art as a language with no boundaries in order to raise controversial social issues for public discussion. At the center of the changing exhibitions in the museum stand the national, ethnic and economic seam lines in their local and universal contexts. The museum is committed to examining the social reality within our regional conflict, to advancing dialogue in the face of discord and to encouraging social responsibility that is based on what we all have in common rather than what keeps us apart.

WESTEND, opened June 2011, invited its viewers to partake in an experience as it is happening, and to examine the different approaches of artists who created their works in the above mentioned space of conflict. To walk between struggles for honor, faith, and prestige weighted down by suspicion, and to look closely at the maze of hostility that led two civilizations to an existential struggle on power and control of the world of tomorrow. Visiting the exhibition will, for a moment, blur the border between imagination and reality. The images from the streets that are reflected on television screens pervade the exhibition halls, are affected by them, and interfere with them. The works that react to this reality do not pass judgments, but rather, open another debate within this reality. But is there one reality? Is there a cross-reality path that allows us to pass from one reality to another? Can the language of art, literature, or creation in general affect us, the human society, and teach us not to repeat the mistakes of the past and the tragedies born of the hatred, separation, and rejection of the other? Maybe the world would conceive of a middle ground for those who live side by side, and want to live side by side, as equals.
