We invite you to the launch of a series of artistic events accompanying the celebration of the 5th anniversary of the opening of POLIN core exhibition. The events are envisaged as a commentary to the exhibition—they will tackle subjects that are under-represented in the exhibition, often criticized or discussed by the audience and experts.

17 October (Thursday), 7.30PM, free admission, limited number of places

In-Between, a performance by Adina Bar-On, deals with transition, with moments of passage understood as an existential theme. During the performance, the artist will invite the audience to become active participants in it, to leave their comfort zone and set off on an existential journey of sorts. Bar-On’s performance will serve as a commentary to one of the exhibition’s main premises—its potential to become a transforming experience, a journey leading to transition.

The performance will take place in the G9 area—an undefined space, a transitional space located in-between the core exhibition’s galleries.

Free passes for the event will be available at the Museum cash desk on the day of the performance.

Adina Bar-On (b. 1951) – one of the first performance artists in Israel, and a social and political activist. She has been known for using her own body in a suggestive and expressive way. Graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Jerusalem, Adina exhibited her work in the leading museums and art galleries both in Israel and abroad.
