Israeli and Jewish Art - Study Tour

Israeli and Jewish Art Study Tour organised by the Centre of Middle East and Religious Studies, will be held between 23 and 30 July 2012 in Israel. The ART study tour is a new initiative of the Centre of Middle East and Religions Studies, striving to give the participants a multi-cultural view of the region from the perspective of the practising artist.

What do the paintings and sculptures reveal about the land, people, history and culture? What footprints of historical events can be read in Israeli art? How is the Israeli/Palestinian conflict mirrored by the artists of our time? Can we find influences of the 3 monotheistic religions on each other in the art work?

The study tour is intended for anyone with an appropriate academic background, who wishes to expand their knowledge about the art scene in Israel. Registration deadline is 1 May 2012.
