The Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center, with support from AIDA, initiated an international, multicultural art event with a controversial subject, “Post-Colonialism?”. For the first time, eight institutions with ceramics departments all over Israel collaborated on this project. The goal was to begin a dialog and an eclectic artistic inquiry into local and global legacies of historical imperialism and specific modern and contemporary colonial practices. 19 artists (10 local, 9 international) were invited to explore these ideological, socio-political, cultural and environmental issues within Israel. The works made during the residency were later exhibited at Benyamini.
