Documenting Israel: Visions of 75 Years

Admission is paid and requires pre-registration

Starting from 3/18/2024

A unique photo exhibition in honor of the country's 75th Independence Day

A tour of a unique photography exhibition by the international photography agency 'Magnum', documenting the State of Israel as never seen before. The exhibition, established in honor of Israel's 75th Independence Year, spans documentation from 1931 to the present day.

Exhibition Curator
Anna Patricia Kahn, a director, photo book editor, former war and Middle East correspondent, and curator of exhibitions featuring prominent photographers from the 20th and 21st centuries. A glimpse into the museum's architecture will reveal how an abstract vision transformed into an impressive structure.

During the tour, visitors will have the unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the museum's structure and the creative process behind it – from a grand vision and abstract idea to its full realization and upcoming opening.

Through the lens of 10 photographers, we will explore the portrait of Israeli society and its complexity, the different parts of the architectural structure, and the stories that link them together.

The Jewish photographers Robert Capa and David "Chim" Seymour frequently visited Israel between 1947-1956, closely documenting its establishment and the early years of the State of Israel. Their documentation, which earned them worldwide fame for their international work covering wars and conflicts, presents an optimistic viewpoint of the newly established country arising from the Holocaust's ruins.

The exhibition includes never-before-seen documentation by Inge Morath (one of the first female members of the 'Magnum' photo agency), whose photographs will be displayed alongside the works of other leading photographers, including the Israeli photographer Micha Bar-Am, and modern artists Benjamin Reich, Nanna Heitmann, and more.

The tour is designed to narrate the story of the establishment and vision of the Museum of Tolerance. It incorporates photographs that tell the complexity of the State of Israel.
