The Jerusalem Show VII
FRACTURES
24 October, 2014 - 7 November, 2014

Curated by: Basak Senova
Assistant Curator: Begum Satiroglu

The Jerusalem Show VII, titled FRACTURES, curated by Basak Senova, brings together projects which attempt to detect and process multiple realities and perceptions of events and conditions in relation with different time sequences. By taking “Jerusalem” as the nucleus of these attempts, the basic aim of the project is to establish and discover links between the diverse artistic manifestations and contributions, accumulated in the course of the project and the daily-life realities of the city.

The show will be presented in the framework of the Second Qalandiya International: ARCHIVES, LIVED AND SHARED. Qi is a coalition of local institutions working together to feature a month-long programme of live events, talks, exhibitions, guided tours, symposia, film screenings and performances. The Jerusalem Show VII is an integral part of the 2014 edition of Qalandiya International.

The media partner for the Jerusalem Show is Ibraaz, the online critical forum for visual culture in North Africa and the Middle East. As part of the Jerusalem Show VII, Ibraaz has dedicated a section of its platform to publishing an online ‘catalogue’ detailing the artists’ activities and accompanying events.
