The exhibition examines the visual language of Belz Hasidic dynasty, on its stylistic and iconographic aspects. Brukenthal traces the artistic affinity of this language, offering a glimpse into the visual motif in contemporary the Jewish Orthodox culture. This motif serves the community as an unmediated symbol that connects the earthly and the spiritual, while also functioning as a signifier of authority and power that position the Belz Hasidic court as an independent political entity.
