Ô vous, frères humains

« Ô vous, frères humains » Luz draws Albert Cohen

From Tuesday 6 December 2016 until Sunday 28 May 2017

“A Jewish child encounters hate on his tenth birthday. I was that child.”

Albert Cohen, 1972

“[…] in 2015, I felt the need to reread O Humans, My Brothers, and I was even more powerfully struck by the terrible psychological ordeal of this young boy wandering on the verge of madness, by the message of Albert Cohen’s last testament...”

Luz, 5 February 2016

The mahJ is showing two cycles of recent works: Glass(es) (2010–11), Morgen (2010–2015) and its extension, Decor: morgen appendix (2015–16). Moshe Ninio’s “forensic” exploration of existing images transform historic relics—an object on display in a museum and a TV show filmed in the early 1960s—into disturbing abstractions.

mahJ's contemporary collection A journey

From Sunday 3 July 2011 until Sunday 11 September 2011

Inviting artists, designers and architects to intervene in the context of a museum collection or historic monument is now a widespread practice, and a perilous but stimulating exercise. Our aim since the museum opened in 1998 has been to constitute a contemporary collection out of these ‘encounters’, that is, to work on a long-term basis with Jewish and non-Jewish artists, always in a spirit of open-mindedness, to create resonances with the objects and themes in the permanent collection.
