Beginning in 1906 with the founding of the Bezalel School of Art, which had set itself the goal of creating a Jewish national art, Zalmona shows how contemporary events are tightly linked to trends in art. Zalmona concludes with a look at the present and the status of photography and video art in Israel today.
