Efrat Shvily
THE JERUSALEM EXPERIENCE

02.06 — 20.08.2017

In her new work, “The Jerusalem Experience,” Efrat Shvily, in collaboration with Oren Myers, is looking at ways in which historic Jerusalem is being made into an “experience” with the help of advanced technology, for the benefit of its visitors but no less so for the benefit of political, religious, and commercial forces.

A project in collaboration with Efrat Shvily and Oren Myers

Co-produced by Camera Austria.

Curated by Reinhard Braun and Joerg Bader

Opening on Thursday 1st June from 18:00

Saturday June 3 at 14:30

Public talk with Efrat Shvily, Marie-José Mondzain & Joerg Bader.

Thursday June 22 from 18:30 to 20:30
Cinéma Dynamo – Centre d’art contemporain
Screening of Yael Bartana’s film “INFERNO” (22 min.), in relation to her solo exhibition in Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne (exhibition until August 20 in Lausanne)

The viewers of the show will get a taste of the Jerusalem “experience” as filmed and photographed in both Jerusalem, Israel, and in São Paulo, Brazil, where the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) last year inaugurated the monumental Third Temple of Solomon, built according to “biblical” proportions. Assaulted by a barrage of image and sound, the viewers will be challenged to tell the old Jerusalem from the new, the real from the fake, and the literal from the metaphorical.
