Description

Visual Arts In Judaism
EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF JEWISH FOLKLORE
Tuesday December 6 @ 7:30 PM
Speaker: Alex Braverman

Creation, Dinah and Shechem, Joseph in Egypt, Job, and all the way to Marc Chagall — what do they have in common? The purpose of art is not to convey facts, that’s the task of sciences; the purpose of art is to elicit an emotional response!

The discussion will be based on the two series of international award winning photographs: Birds of Prey, and Genesis 34. The work was published in B&W Magazine in 2014, and exhibited in Berlin in October 2016

Alex Braverman, a Laureate of Pollux Award and the Grand Prize winner of Popular Photography Magazine, will be presenting a body of work related to Judaism in Europe. Little had survived the onslaught of WWII; further destruction by the Soviet authorities took place after the war, but whatever is left is now deemed world cultural heritage.
