Beyond Borders: Innovating from Conflict to Community in Public Art Engagement in Holon, Israel
Rubenstein, Ziva Haller
Journal of Museum Education, v37 n3 p57-68 Fall 2012
The story of the Center for Digital Art in Holon is a story of innovation in the face of adversity. At key points of escalation in the Middle East conflict, this small-scale arts center managed to rise above and beyond the larger and more traditional museums in Israel to create new models for arts engagement. This article will present the critical junctions at which the Center for Digital Art managed to radically innovate art education approaches, contextualizing their actions within a larger setting of Israel's culture of conflict. What emerges is a working model for artistic engagement that prioritizes community-wide dialogue over target-specific impact, offering new working methodologies for art education professionals to venture beyond the museum and straight to the public both as contributors in the artistic process and end-users of the collaborative work. (Contains 25 notes.)
