The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art presents, for the first time in Israel, a video exhibition devoted exclusively to works selected from the Centre Pompidou New Media Collection in Paris.
This exhibition is centered on two main themes, a historical one and a contemporary one. The first section of the exhibition presents the Israeli public with a series of works that might retrospectively be defined as among the building blocks of video art. The second section of this exhibition reflects the Herzliya Museum’s focus on contemporary works that explore not only aesthetic concerns, but also political, social and cultural ones.
