In an ancient, abandoned house in a side street of Jerusalem, unseen from the main road you bump into „HaMiffal“ (The Factory/ The Endeavor), a project of the artist collective „Bait Rek“ (Empty House). When entering this old building you can’t really define what place this is. In some way it looks private while at the same time it seems to be a communal working place…
After finishing my Bachelor in Art Studies in Montpellier, south France, I decided to go on the ground to see what the art world and its structures are in daily life. I had for this the occasion to live one year in Jerusalem and am now living in Aarhus, Denmark.
It is important for me to learn to change my European point of view and to be more international like the art world is today.
I started with the Near East, or more specific Jerusalem for its mixity in people and cultures. The conflict in this area makes regularly the headlines, but rarely we hear about the beautiful ideas growing there. This blog wishes to show the other side of Israeli and Palestinian people. To share the beauty that there is beyond the surface in this region and in other parts of the world.
I hope you enjoy…
