A hard-hitting political art exhibition from the Middle-East.

About

“Cry, the beloved country” is a nightmarish series of room installations and photography works dealing with the links between Great Britain, Israel and Palestine and depicting the catastrophic results of this unholy conundrum.  Built as a journey into “the heart of darkness” the exhibition is negating many Israelis and Zionists supporters’ view of Israel as a “villa in the jungle”.

Dr. Gil Mualem-Doron (1970) is a Arab-Jewish artist, born and based in the UK. Mualem-Doron’s work is research-based, often transgresses social norms with a focus on issues such as identity politics, nationalism, placemaking and histories of place, social justice, and transcultural aesthetics. He exhibited in the past at the Turner Contemporary, Tate Modern, The People History Museum (Manchester) and many other local and international galleries and museums. The exhibition’s text is written by the curator Galit Eilat director of Meduza Foundation  (Netherlands) and Eilat co-curated the [12] 31st São Paulo Biennial.

The exhibition is supported by the Art Council England.
