About project: 

The title borrowed from a neon work of the duo CLAIRE FONTAINE is a replication, which reminds us that art is above all a reference to otherness, an image of the other in terms of openness to the world. Otherness is understood as the entity that consequently assumes the existence of an alternative viewpoint. In the spaces of the exhibition, we are presented with a story that tells us about the east and the west, their historical upheavals and about the contemporary understood as an adequacy to the present.

The collaboration of the Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center with a major international collector gets a special meaning in this context. Thus, it turns out that the choices prevailing are rich in information about his personality, his history and his personal points of interest. Eduard Pomeranz offers us a perspective on the world and provides a response to the need for a better understanding. All this forms a set that is bound to cause considerable surprise since it has been collected over a short time and is being displayed as a coherent whole with works of great quality and enlightened attitudes.

The exhibition will feature the works of Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Joseph Kosuth, Bruce Nauman, Valie Export, Elmgreen & Dragset among others
