Jerusalem Design Week returns for its 12th edition from 22nd–29th June 2023 at the historic Hansen Household Middle for Layout, Media and Engineering. The flagship celebration of Hansen Residence and Israel’s major design and style function, Jerusalem Design and style Week 2023 will develop on its prior thriving editions. Showcasing a wide array of exclusive exhibitions, installations, and projects, the occasion welcomes the participation of each Israeli and international designers.
The overarching theme of this year’s function is intriguingly titled ‘Lies and Falsehoods’. Inviting a vary of creative interpretations from designers, architects, artists, and tech-savvy experts, the concept seeks to take a look at design’s manipulative instruments and the realities they condition. All through Jerusalem Structure Week, the intention is to current a sequence of performs that capture the that means of illusion, works that knowingly conceal, deceive, or give increase to an alternate truth, and functions that try to uncover and discover real truth and authenticity, in the face of lies and falsehoods.
In 2023, Jerusalem Design Week is joined by two new curators: Dana Ben Shalom and Dr Jeremy Fogel. A senior college member in the Textile Layout Section at Shenkar School of Engineering, Style and design and Art in Ramat Gan, Israel, Dana Ben Shalom is experienced in product exploration, and producing and curating special style and design-centered situations. A lecturer in the Section of Jewish Philosophy at Tel Aviv College, Dr Jeremy Fogel specialises in the philosophical factor underpinning Jerusalem Style and design Week’s standing as a cross-cultural party. The two new curators are joined by inventive director Sonia Olitsky, a graphic designer and researcher of product tradition who performs on the axis among graphic design and the layout of community spaces.
Welcoming the new curatorial staff, Ran Wolf, Director of Jerusalem Design and style 7 days, claims: ‘We are enthusiastic to market new fields and diverse ideas by functioning with the event’s new curatorial team. Dana Ben Shalom has, in modern years, led a substantial range of critical style and design assignments at Hansen Home, and Sonia Olitsky has curated and made many exhibitions at major establishments in Israel. Dr Jeremy Fogel is just one of the most intriguing voices (practically) in the cultural, philosophical discourse. Jeremy problems and distinguishes the yearly topic, and connects Jerusalem Design and style 7 days to the latest world discussion.’
In selecting ‘Lies and Falsehoods’ as the theme of Jerusalem Structure Week, the curators the two admit and problem the serious or imagined discourse of layout. For designers, it is a contact to rethink the basis of each day design resources as kinds of manipulation and as a outcome, to look at their obligations to customers and citizens. The concept, in a way, provides a meta appear at society from a philosophical position of watch, and will drill down and unveil concerns pertinent to the designer’s part: Is style by its really essence very little but trickery and are designers mere illusionists? Has the search for truth of the matter been abandoned and even if it is observed, what is its real worthy of? When/why do we choose pleasure in the comforting natural beauty of well-made illusions and when/why do we request to uncover the fact?
Jerusalem Structure Week’s topic will have interaction with style in terms of the two electronic and analogue realities. Subject areas to be explored involve faux news, phony imagery, and disinformation, and the oscillation of layout amongst fiction (that which dazzles in a bid to maximise financial gain) and actuality (that which prioritises transparency and getting accountability). In a earth where by augmented reality, virtual fact, and synthetic intelligence are in an progressively dominant placement, to what extent will designers succumb to the assure of hello-tech wizardry as opposed to the ongoing practice of craftsmanship and artisanship? And in fact, are lies and falsehoods the new regular?
