Exhibition in China tells the history of the Israeli kibbutz E-mail

Israel’s Consul General in Guangzhou Nadav Cohen and his wife Einan Cohen, who is the cultural attaché at the consulate, both of whom are former kibbutz members, have initiated an exhibition as part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ “Jubilee” project.

The exhibition is currently being displayed simultaneously at Guangzhou’s Red Torii Museum and at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Shantou, where a joint campus has been established with Israel’s Technion university.

It is an audiovisual journey that presents the collective history of kibbutzim in Israel in the years 2010-2017, with an emphasis on “intimate humanity” and combining photography, video art, documentary films and a soundtrack by the Gevatron Choir.

“The State of Israel, with all its advanced achievements, is highly regarded here, and the kibbutz is perceived as a success story with its unique contribution to its establishment,” explained Consul General Cohen, a kibbutznik from the Jordan Valley. “For many of the older generations, the kibbutz is reminiscent of the communal settlements in the periphery of China during the Communist revolution.”
