The exhibition “City Limits” features the works of three female artists: Yael Efrati, Asta Gröting and Monika Sosnowska. The three artists grew up in the same generation but in very different socio-political contexts. While Gröting grew up in prosperous post-war Germany, Sosnowska in communist Poland and Efrati in a family of Eastern European immigrants in Israel. In their works, they all deal with the architectures of their homelands: from the ruins of the Second World War to the architecture of the communist era in Sosnowska’s work to the uprooting of people displaced by the same war and its aftermath in Israel in Efrati’s work.
The war in Ukraine has given the exhibition an additional dramatic topicality that is carefully reflected upon. The exhibition has already been shown in Poland and will be presented in Israel after the Kunsthalle. The guided tour through the exhibition shows the three perspectives of the artists and aims to encourage exchange.
Admission to the Kunsthalle and participation in the guided tour are free of charge. Prior registration is not necessary. The number of participants is limited.
