JDW 2023: ‘Lies and Falsehoods’

 

Launched in 2011, Jerusalem Design Week is the largest and most influential public event dedicated to design in Israel, with a variety of events, shows, and international and local exhibitions. Being the flagship project of Hansen House, JDW initiates and hosts extensive and diverse activities to promote the artistic side of Jerusalem with Israeli and international designers. Every year, the event focuses on one theme, exploring local situations that carry an international relevance.  

 

Jerusalem Design Week 2023 seeks to explore and celebrate the pivotal role of designers within this context. The annual experience hosts projects that delve into the significance of illusions, which can conceal and deceive, giving rise to parallel realities. Simultaneously, it features creations that embrace transparency, honesty, as well as a pursuit of authenticity amongst the deceit that surround us, also made clear by the theme’s title, ‘Lies and Falsehoods.’

thought-provoking installations and immersive spaces

 

Throughout the week, Hansen House’s spaces come alive with installations and performances, representing various design disciplines. Visitors can experience captivating immersive spaces, such as HQ Architects’ shadow play on Hansen House’s façade or Nohlab’s transformative animation and sound installation in the attic. Other highlights include Tamar Nix’s textile installation evoking the softness of clouds and Studio Ma’s synthetic garden reflecting the disruption of urban nature.

The event also features engaging collaborations, including Shahar Kedem’s exploration of taxidermy and the human-nature relationship at the Museum of Natural History. Additionally, an exhibition curated by Dr. Johnathan Ventura and Galit Shvo delve into conscripted design, revealing how consumer goods serve as mechanisms for propagating social messages. Moreover, TYPOMANIA, a graphic design group, presents a poster exhibition using black and white to respond to the theme of truths and lies.

JDW 2023 also engages with Jerusalem’s urban myths through the ‘Matchmaker’ project, connecting designers, tour guides, and storytellers to create souvenirs that encapsulate the stories of iconic buildings. The event prioritizes support for non-commercial design projects, fostering the commissioning of new works and the acquisition of public resources.
