The Jerusalem Show
Ibraaz is pleased to announce the opening of THE JERUSALEM SHOW VII: FRACTURES. Curated by Basak Senova and organized by Al-Ma'mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem, this year's show runs from 24 October to 7 November 2014, and is presented in the framework of the second Qalandiya International (Qi), ARCHIVES, LIVED AND SHARED, which will take place from 22 October to 15 November.
As media partner, and with the support of the Kamel Lazaar Foundation, Ibraaz has produced an online catalogue to accompany the event, complete with contributions from the show's organizers, Basak Senova and Jack Persekian, and contextual essays from Jalal Toufic, Tina Sherwell, and Stephanie Bailey. Co-edited by Anthony Downey and Basak Senova, the online catalogue presents each section of the show as chapters, including INTENSITIES, DETAILS, INTERVALS, MEASURES, LINES, WRITING and FABRIC. These present documentation of site-specific art projects, performances, artist books, a programme of performances, walks, talks and screenings, and will be updated for the duration of the exhibition.
Over the coming weeks, we will also present a number of interviews with artists and recorded seminars with local and international speakers. The Ibraaz Channel will simultaneously publish video documentation of live performances and make available all of this material for download to audiences within the city and beyond.
'The starting point of FRACTURES is Jerusalem, a city that persistently folds multiple pasts into contradictory presents. In this line of thought, FRACTURES gathers research-based projects that detect and process multiple realities and perceptions of events and conditions in relation with different time sequences while taking 'Jerusalem' as the nucleus of this attempt.'
'In a city bound by the sinuous threads of history, geopolitics, occupation, and the day-to-day ignominy of state-ordained containment and illegal annexation, the question of restrictions, boundaries, limits and peripheries is a far from abstract concern for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.'
A View From the City
A View from Afar
'The fractious conditions we might perceive in Jerusalem, let alone the state of Israel, extend far beyond the Palestine-Israeli conflict and its myriad schisms.'
If You Prick Us, Do We Not Bleed? No.
