Dissolving Localities | Berkeley Jerusalem: A Multimedia Exhibit

With Avenali Resident Fellow Emmanuel Witzthum
Sunday, Jan 22, 2012 to Tuesday, Jul 3, 2012
The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, 2121 Allston Way, Berkeley
United States

Dissolving Localities | Berkeley Jerusalem will extend Avenali Resident Fellow Emmanuel Witzthum's recent project, where artists were invited to "perform" the city of Jerusalem as a musical/visual instrument. By interweaving recorded sights and sounds, they created an expanding open-source multimedia montage. During his residency in Berkeley, Witzthum will build an audiovisual dialogue between Jerusalem, his hometown, and Berkeley, in an installation at the Main Gallery of The Magnes. The final result will be presented in a public program at the closing of his residency on March 15.
