Search for Identity in Israel

Share:

The Münchner Stadtmuseum shows “Goodbye Mr. President”, a gallery exhibition with works by Tel Aviv based photographer Jonas Opperskalski. On view 18 March until 22 May, 2016.

Tel Aviv-based photographer Jonas Opperskalski has been exploring the younger generation’s quest for identity in Israel, Palestine and the countries of the Mediterranean since 2011. The lack of political vision in the region has led the younger generation, in particular, to live in a kind of vacuum where the main challenges they face are a search for belonging, a clash between religious and secular influences, and economic uncertainty. In this gallery exhibition, Opperskalski’s photographic works are divided into three sections. “The 12 Million”, a visual investigation of diversity in Israeli and Palestinian society, “Goodbye Mr. President”, a collection of ordinary and less ordinary scenes from the Middle East and “sorry, welcome” which documents the ongoing quest for asylum of a Roma family from Macedonia.

Jonas Opperskalski was born in Kaufbeuren in 1988. Diploma in Photojournalism from the Danish School of Media and Journalism (Aarhus) and Bachelor’s Degree in Design from the Munich University of Applied Sciences. His work has been published in a number of magazines and newspapers such as Der Spiegel, Neon, Nido, Die Zeit, NZZ, Das Magazin, der Freitag, Revue, Colors, TAZ and zenith. Jonas Opperskalski lives as a photographer and filmmaker in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Israel.

Exhibition opens Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 6.00 to 8.00 pm
Conversation with the artist Friday, March 18, 2016, 3.00 pm
