Guava at mamuta

Guava exhibition at the Mamuta Art and Media Center.


Curators: Sala-Manca

Guava is a platform created by Thalia Hoffman for various art actions. All these acts—films, performance, participatory actions, and research—challenge conventions regarding physical and ideological movement in the Middle East, and examine the possibility of imagining the region open to movement. The spaces of Mamuta at the Hansen House in Jerusalem—where Hoffman’s platform resides—serve as a kind of safe haven for the works she created in recent years, and for the new works that she has created especially for the Mamuta spaces. The exhibition also features a study group and radio programs that host various people. All these make Guava a living space that echoes the voices of those who choose to take part in it.
