Musrara Mix18 Minisite

Musrara Mix International Art Festival returns for the 18th year to the Musrara neighborhood in Jerusalem, with a rich multidisciplinary program featuring dozens of artists and musicians from Israel and around the world. The artworks, the music performances and the seminars will take place within the gallery complexes, courtyards, halls, streets and public spaces of the neighborhood and allow free wandering and exploration throughout Musrara - a fascinating multicultural neighborhood in Jerusalem. The yearly festival, initiated and produced by Musrara - the Naggar Multidisciplinary School of Art and Society, will focus on uncertainty and disruptions, with the term "Breathturn" as coined by Paul Celan, one of the greatest European and Jewish poets of modern times, suggesting methods that can hold us and maintain balance in uncertainty to give hope, but these methods also change all the time ... "Musrara Mix - Breathturn" offers visitors a window to a new, complex, fickle and surprising reality.
