The "Defense Lines" exhibition guided tour by the Gallery staff
Guided Tour of the Current Exhibition "Defense Lines" at the Tel-Aviv University Art Gallery By the Gallery Staff
The "Defense Lines" exhibition at the Genia Schreiber and Michel Kikoïn Art Gallery at Tel Aviv University is free and open to the public
At the "Defense Lines: Maginot, Bar-Lev and Beyond” exhibition,the sources, character, and implications of fortification are examined from an historical point of view. It shows how previously impressive fortifications have been destroyed, forgotten, left to the mercies of nature, and, in time, became monuments to failure, like fundamental specimens of human fear.
The exhibit centers on photographs of two famous fortification lines: the French Maginot Line and the Israeli Bar-Lev Line, which are both linked to this day with personal and national traumas. Alongside these photographs are works on the wall between the United States and Mexico, the Great Wall of China, and the Israeli separation fence.
