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.
