Contemporary Art & Yiddish Book

A Kayma/Yung Yiddish collaborative exhibit that challenges contemporary artists to grapple with endangered Yiddish books as a source of inspiration.
 
The idea of inviting contemporary artists to create an original work relating to the Yiddish books collected during the past 20 years all over Israel by YUNG YiDDiSH has a double origin: first, our belief that Yiddish language and culture, once exceptionally rich as a language of lived experience, is able to stimulate new creativity in the visual arts, raising modern issues and futuristic insights. Second, the fact that the books and the heritage they represent are in danger. We hope that an artistic event will contribute to their preservation for present and future generations.
