This exhibition in the Bernheimer Gallery grants the audience insight into the art of the Israeli post-war generation of photographers. Their work considers the topography of Israel today, focusing both on the actual geographic surface of the region and on the psychological state of their generation. Political changes and the religious conflict between the Jewish and Muslim populations form the framework of this exhibition.

Michal Rovner [*1955, Israel] uses photography, installation, and video arts for delving into the main principles of a collective identity and a sense of «togetherness». Simcha Shirman [*1947, Germany], Gilad Ophir [*1957, Israel] and Roi Kuper [*1957, Israel] study the country's changing borders and the population's point of view. The work of Sigalit Landau [*1969, Israel], considered one of the foremost contemporary Israeli artists, addresses topics such as «foreignness» and migration, the individual and society, and reality versus utopia.

This exhibition is organised in cooperation with the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and it furthers the Art Road to Peace project of the German Friends and Patrons of the Tel Aviv Museum. In this project, Jewish and Muslim children will have the opportunity to approach each other in joint art classes.
