Yesterday November 7th, the exhibition of Parallel Traces in Wroclaw, Poland, was inaugurated in the fantastic space of the White Stork synagogue, center of the Bente Kahan Foundation, partner of the Parallel Traces project.
It has been a very special night, where we were able to share ideas and reflections, alongside the creative works of our artists. Bente Kahan, CEO of the foundation, has presented before a large and enthusiastic audience the round table, formed by Daniel Grunfeld and Agnieszka Traczewska (guest artists), Ewa Rossano and Witja Frank (winners of the Parallel Traces contest), together with Rosa Juanco (Parallel Traces artistic director). The discussion covered different topics as the interpretation of heritage, the connection between Jewish heritage and audio-visual art, and above all, of the traces, here and there. A dialogue between artists, between cities, between different ways of working and understanding Jewish heritage today through a new lens. The artists have shared their approach in their work, creating a revealing and significant dialogue within the framework of Parallel Traces.
We want to thank Bente Kahan and Malgorzata Hucko for the fantastic work in the production of the exhibition, with the supervision of the curator Rosa Juanco. Thanks to their dedication, this project travels from city to city, with new forms, transforming itself, becoming a unique production, and above all, offering new content and reflections.
