The exhibition “Freitag, der 13. | יום שישי ה-13” presents a number of international artists in the context of a cultural dialogue. The works of the exhibiting artists illuminate contradictory perspectives on an object or matter, as is exemplified in the title and the opening date of the show, where the number 13 can be interpreted either as an unlucky number or as a lucky number, depending on the cultural background and historical context. The exhibition deals with certain cultural, political as well as artistic, formal phenomena, which revolve around contradictions, paradoxes and contrasting pairs.
