The Jerusalem Show VII, entitled “Fractures” and curated by Basak Senova, brings together projects which attempt to detect and process multiple realities and perceptions of events and conditions in relation with different time sequences. By taking “Jerusalem” as the nucleus of these attempts, the basic aim of the project is to establish and discover links between the diverse artistic manifestations and contributions accumulated in the course of the project and the daily-life realities of the city.
