KONTRAPUNKT is a series of six events which interrelates contemporary art and dance. Each event establishes a dialogue between one of the Museum’s exhibitions on display and a contemporary dance piece, and includes a visit to the exhibition, a viewing of the dance performance and an open discussion with curators and choreographers.

With KONTRAPUNKT, we aim to bring together the Museum’s visitors and the dance audience in a mutual discourse on issues of expression, interpretation and conventions - through the prism of the two disciplines. 

our first chapter:

Kontrapunkt #1: Conflict as Raw Material 

Arkadi Zaides/Gustav Metzger

13 February 2014 at 19:30

Over the past six decades, Gustav Metzger has reacted critically in his art to what he views as humanity's ongoing injustices, and developed various tactics aiming to rouse us from our indifference and expose us to what we have ceased to observe. 

Arkadi Zaides, recipient of the Emile Zola Human Rights award, is the Israeli choreographer most identified with taking a political stance. In his work he seeks to remind his viewers of mundane occurrences which he believes they prefer not to see.

This platform provides an encounter between two artists who are stirred to action by reality, surrounded by conflicts which provide them with raw materials for a profound creation that raises a disturbing and poignant mirror in the viewers' face.
