Installation, in the frame of The Museum of the Contemporary, Mamuta in Ein Karem
Another stop along the tourists’ route, where art becomes the decoration of a private school-trip experience. The museum is a modern secular church and the performance executed in the Church is a combination of a mass, sermon and poetry reading. A reference to the unique geographic site of the Museum of the Contemporary, midway through the pilgrimage route to the Church of Visitation. A sculptural object, duplication of an Eastern European church to the Arab village; another comment on the process of converting the house’s original identity, “halfway” between the architectural tradition of a Norwegian church and a zimmer in northern Israel. The Church of Criticism features and quotes Western philosophers as icons of the Church’s outlook.
