PURIM by Michal Meron

9th March -27th April 2014
Sunday 9th March at 11.30 am inauguration with a small introduction by Riccardo Calimani.

The exhibition wants to bring into focus the audience’s attention in a festivity officially considered as a less important one, as it is not taught in the Torah, but that is a festivity long loved both by children and grown-ups. During such festivity it is a duty reading or listening to the meghilath Ester (Parchment telling the story of Queen Esther), celebrating and rejoicing , give food to friends and to poor people, with a wide sense of joy and sharing.

Michal Meron interpreted the story of Esther, setting it in the city of Venice, and, thanks to her art skill and to her positive attitude and sunny nature, succeeded in living to the narration a feeling of joy and happiness. With the help of Michal we shall meet the wicked Haman angry as its home has been drowned by the Venetian “Acqua alta” (water at flood level); the royal couriers moving on bicycles transported on gondolas and Mordechai who, in royal clothing, rides the king’s horse on a gondola. All this happens, however, in a so natural way that nothing strange seems about the performing of the Persian story among the palaces and the canal of the Most Serene Republic.

SPORT, SPORTMEN AND WOMEN, OLYMPIC GAMES in Europe during the War (1936-1948) organized by the Shoah Mémorial in Paris

3rd – 28th February 2014
Same fees and timetable of the Jewish Museum

Since their rediscovery the contemporary Olympic Games stir people’s interest and occupy a growing space in the collective imagination, in the society and in political life.
Olympic Games will be used from the ideological point of view for the spreading of Nazi propaganda all over Europe. As a reaction, a number of pleas to boycott the Games on behalf of basic principles of democracies are launched. The ineffectiveness of opinion campaigns for the boycott, the relinquishment of the national Olympic committees to take a stand against it, as well as the unprecedented media arousing about this edition of the Olympic Games seem to make it unavoidable that the Olympics have to take place in Berlin.
When World War II sparks off the Nazi terror all around Europe, sport becomes an instrument of submission and of cruelty used against the victims of the universe of concentration camps.
The exhibition, organized by the Shoah Mémorial in Paris and the enclosed seminar have been strongly wanted by the Jewish Community of Venice and Coopculture and supported by the Shoah Mémorial in Paris
