Following the scandal over an antisemitic artwork at the documenta art exhibition in Kassel, the Jewish Art Salon will host its next Open Studio on August 28 presenting an artistic dialog. Topics will include: anti-Semitism in art, freedom of creative expression, and does racism equal antisemitism and islamophobia.
Anti-Semitism is a widespread problem throughout society; the issue recently created an earthquake in Germany and globally. "Taring Padi", an Indonesian collective that created a provocative painting at Documenta Fifteen in Kassel, Germany, encountered a lot of media interest and made headlines. The expulsion of Jewish and Israeli artists from Documenta Fifteen raises topics of anti-Semitism and the arts and also in relation to the state of Israel.
