Modern Jewish art has taken many forms, reflecting the diversity of the global Jewish population. From religious-inspired sculptures to documentary photography that has its roots in the work of photojournalists, contemporary artists are engaging with traditional themes and materials in refreshing ways. Much of Jewish art produced today is a part of the ongoing narrative regarding what it means to be Jewish in different stages of history. Its focus often includes disparate historical experiences, such as migration and diaspora, displacement and displacement identity, memory and collective consciousness. Contemporary Jewish art provides us with a unique window into modern times, exploring how individuals and societies are responding to their changing identities by assimilating or rejecting values from past generations.
