Conversations on Jewish Life on the Island of Rhodes, a multimedia pop-up installation in the West Village. Free admission. Through Nov 24th

About this Event

Los Corassones Avlan is a full immersive experience exploring centuries of Jewish life in Rhodes before World War II. A multimedia installation playing on the tension between personal memory, official history and ongoing research debates.

Los Corassones Avlan is conceived as an old funhouse, made up of objects, projection and rotating soundscapes, which will juxtapose ambiguities, uncertainties and discontinuities onto linear representations of the past. It will invite the public to imagine a world that was profoundly different from ours and to question stereotypes and prepackaged depictions of other cultures that increasingly restrict the way in which we experience the present.

Coffee, tea, burekitas and pastry will be served daily during visiting hours. The bar behind the exhibition space is open to the public at night.

This event is presented by Primo Levi Center and the Rhodes Jewish Historical Foundation in partnership with NYU Casa Zerilli Marimò, Kehlila Kedosha Janina, the American Sephardi Federation.
