Beit Alliance > 07.06-14.06

A flag serves as a unifying factor for a group of individuals having a common denominator or common land, relies on history and represents the collective dream. Seventy years ago, the Flag Committee decided that the flag of the State of Israel will be the flag of the Zionist Movement. That flag embodied both the history and the dream. On the one hand, there is the Star of David, the tallit, (prayer shawl) and Zionism and, on the other hand, the young Jewish State. Seventy years later, the emerging history is changing the dream and the collective consciousness. Are those images and symbols still relevant? What has seven decades instilled in us? Where do we go from here? Participants in this exhibition are well-known artists and those at the start of their careers, a collection of artists and opinions that are challenging the flag according to seven concepts that are simultaneously full and empty: independence, heroism, war, peace, democracy, brotherhood and culture, and that present a renewed examination of the brief but complicated history of seven decades of independence
