Closing Exhibition of Jewish Communities’ Artist Camp

Works created in the art camp will be on display at the exhibition in the Orthodox Synagogue of Pásti Street.

For the second time, an art camp was organised by the Jewish Communities and Organisations of Central and Eastern Europe to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Holocaust. “The Debrecen Jewish Quarter is one of the most dynamically developing cultural and religious sacred spaces in the country today. Its role in the culture of Debrecen is indisputable,” says the Debrecen Jewish Community in a statement. Against this background, a new initiative has been announced,  the Debrecen Jewish Quarter Artists’ and Artists’ Camp will be organised for the first time by the association. The event is by invitation only. Among the artists there are artists from Debrecen, from other parts of the country and from abroad, who are nationally and internationally renowned.

During the camp, they not only get to know the Jewish Quarter of Debrecen, but also gain a deep knowledge of Jewish life in the region by visiting local sacred spaces, with the undisguised aim of inspiring them to create. The works produced during the camp will be on display in an exhibition at the Orthodox Synagogue on Pásti Street.

The closing exhibition of the 2nd Zsini Artists’ Camp, entitled Eternal Souls, will be opened by Eszter Láng, artist, on Friday at 5.00 p.m.  in the Synagogue Gallery (Debrecen, Pásti Street 4). The event will be opened by Deputy Mayor of Debrecen István Puskás and essayist and folklorist Zsolt Heller.
