Launch of “37%” Website and Opening of Photography Exhibition


Artist: Tomer Apelbaum
Curator: Tami Riklis

Gallery talk with Almog Bahar and Khaled Khatib at 20:30

Barbur Gallery is hosting the Ir Amim for the launch of “37%” website and the opening of the photography exhibition by Tomer Apelbaum.

The “37% – East Jerusalem Stories” project was born in the wake of the violent summer of 2014, which left Jerusalem shaken and on edge. “37%” is designed to create a space—within the constraints of the current reality of the city—that recognizes the lives of Palestinians in Jerusalem—37% of the city’s population.  Newspaper headlines, statistics and slogans cannot capture the reality of real people’s everyday lives. The project is not intended to steer away from political dialog. The political is inescapably present in every grain of life in Jerusalem.  At core, the project reflects the idea that the personal is political and the political is personal, aiming to reduce the artificial distinction between the two.

Each week during  the summer, we will upload new stories of men and women of diverse ages, occupations, backgrounds and neighborhoods that combine to form a portrait—partial but vital—of East Jerusalem and its people

Barbur is a place for art in Jerusalem and an ongoing forming project. It was founded in July 2005 by five friends, Jerusalem-based emerging artists working collectively in an independent nonprofit space for art and artists, in the aim of offering a platform for critical debate that addresses social issues while developing projects with local communities.
