This program facilitates the exploration of cultural developments in Israel and provides a platform for inquiry, projects, and initiatives to emerge. The week-long intensive itinerary includes visits to museums, alternative spaces, collections, and studios and discussions with leading artists, curators, historians and influential thinkers.
