Typically, when you think of Israel’s cultural scene, you’ll think of Tel Aviv.
While the arts can be found all over the country, Tel Aviv is perceived as the cultural capital of Israeli art. Home to a plethora of theatres, art galleries & music venues of all sizes. It’s a city where art can be found on almost every street corner and is very much revered and proudly on display. Tel Aviv’s art scene is the celebrated daughter that puts on a show and flashes her many trophies in front of adoring audiences.
Jerusalem’s art scene isn’t quite like that and that’s what makes Jerusalem’s art scene so different and intriguing – because exciting projects happen that are only on the radar of Jerusalemites in the know. Jerusalem’s art scene is the quieter daughter, the one that people don’t pay as much attention to but is secretly a genius, choosing not to advertise her brilliance to the entire world. I recently became fascinated by Jerusalem’s underground art scenes and found them so interesting that I wanted to share those moments with you.
