Our community Shlicha Keren Weisshaus will be speaking to the Congregation Sinai Women’s Club but the event is open to the community.
The Israeli art field has always had a complex relationship with the representation of the human body and the female body in particular.
Much like the Zionist movement wished to form a new perception of the Jewish people, the art world wished to form a new Jewish body image.
The body was a tool artists enlisted to convey ideological messages and later used as a way to express their criticism of Israeli society. The female body was not only objectified to please the eyes of the beholder, it was recruited to give birth to a new nation.
We will discuss how the evolution in the Jewish body representation can lead to a better understanding of the undercurrents of the Israeli art world.
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Open To Public
