Janco Dada Museum

קרן אור - רקע

For this event, we will be looking at an artist named, Marcel Janco. Romanian born artist, Marcel relocated to Zurich in his twenties and joined forces with his friend Tristan Tzara in developing the Dada movement. They eventually expanded their new aesthetic, based on a combination of Cubism and Expressionism, to three- dimensional works and then a kind of early performance art. Faced with the brutal persecution brought on by growing anti-Semitism in Europe, Janco left Romania and immigrated to what was then the Palestinian Mandate. His immediate involvement with local artists had a formative influence on the development of modern Israeli Art.

Ra'aya Zomer, the Director of the Janco Dada Museum, will host a discussion entitled, "Marcel Janco and the Dada Spirit in Israeli Contemporary Art." She places Janco as a Jewish artist in the context of a larger international movement that, in her words, "totally changed modern art."
