 Joseph Sassoon Semah:

 On Friendship / (Collateral  Damage) V

  - Between Graveyard and Museum's Sphere. 

  is due to be published (end June 2024)

At first glance, a graveyard and a museum space seem to have little in common. Yet they both give meaning to the artworks presented by Joseph Sassoon Semah (Baghdad, 1948) in the exhibition Between Graveyard and Museum's Sphere. Sassoon Semah takes the visitor on a wondrous journey of exploration. This journey extends from the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, through the lost public space of Baghdad, the waiting room of his Saba (grandfather) and the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, to spatial architecture based on the typography of the Talmud Bavli. 

 

With much art and texts by Joseph Sassoon Semah, Steve Austen, Linda Bouws, Shulamit Bruckstein Çoruh, Guus van Engelshoven, Arie Hartog, Gideon Ofrat, Jom Semah, David Sperber and Rick Vercauteren.
