ZUMU – Museum on the Move
ZUMU (a portmanteau combining the Hebrew words for “move” and “museum”) is a community based mobile museum, which moves throughout Israel showcasing changing exhibits that are created and curated together with the local communities. Founded in 2017, one of five Sotheby’s commendations for 2018 and now in its fifth station in Lod, Zumu is a unique phenomenon combining art with social change and a deep love of Israeli society. In this session, Shirel will introduce us to the story behind this initiative, exploring the previous exhibitions and highlighting both the art and the social contexts in each of the cities. The session will continue with Milana Gitzin-Adiram, Founding Director and Chief Curator tof Zumu, to hear her story. A woman inventing a museum and out to make a change in Israeli society, looking to get rid of the conventional divisions between the artists & audiences, art & communities and creativity & reality.
