PHOTOPOETICS {#7} | The Man Without Qualities

PHOTOPOETICS explores the intersection of photography, video, art, and poetry. The project wishes to set in motion a discussion and exploration of the relationship and tension between the written word and the visual image. The experimental project is characteristic of Musrara Art School’s activity as a place for contemporary art at the heart of Jerusalem’s seam line – between East and West, a site of many existential experiences, identities and cultures.

In its 7th iteration, PHOTOPOETICS centers around Robert Musil’s novel The Man Without Qualities, written before World War II. Avi Sabag, the head curator of the Musrara Art School Galleries, identifies parallels between the period in which the novel was written and today’s Israel, specifically the question of multiple identities that is so pertinent to the Middle East in general, and to Musrara neighborhood in particular.
