The Complete Jessy Cohen Museum is an ongoing project established by artists Effi & Amir together with Igal Ophir, Yaakov Erlich, Haviva Barkol, Pnina Barkol, Dvora Harel, Malka Cohen, Ruti Mizrahi, Tikva Sedes, Rachel Polet, Mimi Rosenberg, Ada Rahamim, and many more Jessy Cohen neighborhood residents.

It is a constantly evolving museum-site that attempts to capture the concept of “place” in is broadest meaning, beyond the concrete-geographic.

Each year an artist is invited to lead a new venture in the project.

The first phase of the project (2016) was comprised of two central elements. One provided a spatial reference centered on mapping the Jessy Cohen neighborhood as perceived by its residents, while the second provided a timeline of the neighborhood that describes, from various perspectives, the main events that have occurred there since the 1950s till current day.
 

In 2017, Gal Leshem led a new project, whereby the Museum focused on the history of the local school, which had served the neighborhood for almost sixty years prior to its closing in 2012, as well as the Center for Digital Art as its new occupants.

In 2018, Tamir Erlich led a project focusing on the archeological excavation carried out in the neighborhood in 1965, its findings, and its historical links to contemporary times.

We invite you to submit proposals for the next art project of 2019 in the Complete Jessy Cohen Museum. The Museum staff has decided this year's focus will be Home and Housing.

Two years ago, the Holon Municipality approved a massive urban renewal plan for the Jessy Cohen neighborhood. Several projects of private contractors are already on the way, with additional national outline planning for some neighborhood buildings. The extensive changes expected to expand local housing options is a source of hope to many, but also raises many concerns among neighborhood residents. The choice to focus on this subject relates to current and radical changes that may transform the place entirely. Therefore, there exists a real need to truly examine the links between residents and their place, and particularly the issue of housing, as this has always been a central struggle for local residents.

Please submit proposals that entail collaborating with residents, staying for a duration in the neighborhood, conducting dialogues with the Museum staff, and finally a presentation (of exhibition of some kind).

Possible project concepts:

Home vs. Housing

Housing protests

The Jessy Cohen absorption camp

The end of an era – What will be lost

 

Projects resources include:

  • A work space
  • All research materials gathered thus far by the Complete Jessy Cohen Museum, including key figures in the neighborhood (past and present).
  • Curatorial and production support by the Digital Art Center staff.
  • Consultation from Effi and Amir – the initiators and founders of the Complete Jessy Cohen Museum.
  • A production budget.
  • Artist fee.

 

Proposals will be initially screened by Museum staff, along with the curatorial staff of the Digital Art Center, artists Effi and Amir, and a residents' curator group. Suitable candidates will be asked to attend a meeting with Museum staff. Final selection will be held after that meeting.

Please submit proposals by April 10, 2019.

Proposals must be sent in (maximum) 4A format, along with CV to:
