(Not) a Good Time for Love
Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center presents the exhibition (Not) a Good Time for Love. Love Stories of the Holocaust Survivors. The project is based on the recently published diaries, memoirs and biographies of the concentration camps prisoners, Jewish guerillas and members of the political underground as well as their children, grandchildren and invited biographers. Books recalling love and resistance in the times of the Holocaust are a recent phenomenon connected to the fact that there are less and less eyewitnesses alive and at the same time to the rising popularity of the New Sincerity. These stories remind us that Shoah is a tragedy with many faces and multiple consequences and can be seen through the everyday lives of the victims. The project presents 10 love stories of victims of the tragedy who lived through separation, death of their children, friends and relatives in the time of war. The exhibition will be filled with memories of the past weddings, dates in ghettoes, forbidden presents, mutual care, dreams of home, family and own land – Palestine. Witnesses’ stories engage into dialogue with works of contemporary artists exploring the history of the Holocaust and other military conflicts.

Guy Bourdin. Follow Me
Guy Bourdin is internationally recognized for his provocative and convention resisting images. The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography in Moscow presents Bourdin’s retrospective exhibition which features more than fifty of the artist’s most iconic works, created between the 1950s and the mid-1980s. Originally a painter, deployed aerial photographer and later an apprentice of Man Ray, Guy Bourdin developed a signature style in photography – mainly in the realms of commercial and fashion, but at the same time very autonomous works – highlighted with bright colours, surreal elements and according apply of his models. The images as presented in Moscow range from Bourdin’s personal archives to campaigns assigned by French Vogue and Charles Jourdan. In these works, Bourdin reflected themes of perversions, lust and consumption, while deliberately avoiding mere product representation. Thereby, Bourdin’s radical approach still has an immense impact on the fashion world today.
