Ella Littwitz


Guided exhibition tour in English with Seamus Kealy, director of Salzburger Kunstverein.

In her artwork, Israeli-born Ella Littwitz addresses the territorialization and the construction of historical and psychological frontiers, and the often unstable rules that create these divisions. The artist presents an installation inspired, in part, by footballs found in the course of 19 years in Jerusalem's mined no-man's-land.

Farid Hafez

Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism

Lecture. In German language
Salzburger Kunstverein | admission free
A cooperation between Salzburger Kunstverein and digital spring festival.

Is Islamophobia the new anti-Semitism? Or is Islamophobia just the other side of the same coin besides anti-Semitism? How related and how different are these two phenomenons? Can they be compared at all? Dr. Farid Hafez, publisher of Islamophobia Studies Yearbook (founded in 2010) and political scientist at Salzburg University, will give a profound insight into this debate.
