KUMZITS: “HaMapah” – Yael Serlin

01.01.1970 - 11:00 / „Kółeczko” (on the corner of Brzozowa street and Joselewicza street)

Come and join me around the table. I collected symbols from gravestones around Poland. Choose one that speaks to you, and embroider it as freely as you wish. Together we reconnect the hidden layers of stories, people, beliefs and traditions gathered into one symbol, like frozen images to be revived. 

Duration: everyday 11:00 – 19:00 

Location: corner of Brzozowa and Joselewicza street (“Kółeczko” square)

Come and sit, Przyjdź i usiądź, בוא/י שב/י.  

We miss being able to get together, so we created “Kumzits”, which means campfire in Hebrew. A group of us from Jerusalem, Berlin and Krakow developed eight art projects in public space. They are our proverbial campfire. Although most of us could not make it here in person, we are all around Kazimierz. Come and share a moment with us.
