An unhoped-for heritage: an archaeological discovery in Alsace

From Thursday 29 June 2017 until Sunday 28 January 2018

In autumn 2012, the extraordinary discovery of a genizah in the attic of the synagogue at Dambach-la-Ville in the Bas-Rhin brought to light thousands of documents and objects dating from the 14th to the 19th century, “saved from the skip” by researchers and volunteers. This genizah contained an extraordinary wealth of vestiges, both in their variety and their age.

« 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...”

Moshe Ninio Lapse Prix Maratier 2015

From Wednesday 28 September 2016 until Sunday 29 January 2017

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.
