Santiago Palomero Plaza z”lfeatured

By AEJM / Eva Koppen on

In one of his last public interventions, Santiago referred to the poet Gabriel Selaya (1911-1991) when stating “I curse the museum that does not take sides, sides until it becomes stained”. This was his starting point, his objective, his way of being: the commitment to heritage, culture, history and life pushed him to promote new visions and new perspectives in museology and in the interpretation of Hispanic Jewish heritage.

Arik Brauer. All of My Arts

On display at Jewish Museum Vienna
-

“I’ve always been a painter,” is the reply Arik Brauer gives when asked about how he found his way to art. Whereby in his case it is better to speak of the arts: Painting, architecture, music, dance, sculpture and poetry are just some of the areas in which he has successfully used his versatile talents. From the carefree childhood abruptly ended by National Socialism to the murder of his father in the Holocaust, through the study years at the Academy of Fine Arts, where he co-founded the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, his journeys by bicycle through Europe and Africa, the Parisian years with his wife Naomi—a Yemeni woman born in Israel, whose father was Theodor Herzl’s coachman in Palestine—, all the way to the return to Vienna with his family, where he became one of the pioneers of Austropop, championed environmental protection, and had an apartment house built according to his plans.
