I`m a Political Wall
Meeting place: Davidka Square (next to the fountain), at the intersection of Jaffa Rd.
Thursday, October 26th, 20:00  
When, if ever, have you closely observed a drawing or writing sprayed on a wall on some street? Most of us are inclined to filter that information as street `noise.` However, during these tours led by graffiti artists from the Grafitiyul team, full attention will be paid to them. An attempt will be made to investigate the Jerusalem manifestations of this urban art genre that is now prevalent in nearly every large city worldwide. By observing the writing and drawings, tensions existing between different groups in the city and their respective fields of interest will be revealed, as will the reality in the Holy City as seen through activist prisms. The boundaries of creativity and freedom of expression are among the topics that will be raised.
The tour will end at its starting point.

An opportunity to become acquainted with this historic building constructed by the Ottomans in 1890, originally intended to be an orphanage. It was purchased in 1908 (along with the adjacent building) by the Jewish National Fund for the Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts, which was founded by Boris Schatz (who lived across the street). It was converted into the Bezalel National Museum in 1925, and remained such until the Israel Museum was built. The collections at the Bezalel National Museum were transferred to the new museum and formed the core of the Israel Museum`s collections. Since the middle of the 1960s, the building has housed the Association of Jerusalem Artists and Sculptors.
The ground floor features an exhibition of historic works dating back to the Bezalel period (Ze`ev Raban, Haviv Sasson) as well as an interactive display.

rare opportunity to visit the home of Charlotte Bergman, who was one of the Israel Museum`s most important benefactors. The house is located on the Museum campus and was designed to be an integral part of it. It was built especially for Mrs. Bergman at the initiative of Jerusalem`s legendary mayor, Teddy Kollek. From an architectural perspective, the house translates the Museum`s construction language into domestic uses. The interior design was influenced by Mrs. Bergman`s home in New York and is replete with original works by Braque, Chagall, Dufy, Moore, Picasso, Calder, Maillol, and other artists. It also contains furniture, artifacts and jewelry that Charlotte collected during her numerous trips around the world, some of which she took with her husband Louis, who died in 1955. In its heyday, the house served as a literature and art salon that hosted intellectuals and men and women of the arts.
Charlotte died in 2002 (at the age of 98) and the Museum continues to honor her wish that the house be kept exactly as it was – namely, the home of a late 20th century art collector – just like the period rooms in the Museum.
The tours will be led by Nurit Orr, a senior guide from the Israel Museum`s guide staff.
