Jewish Museum, Prague & Yeshiva University Museum
Goal | Chronicle an artist's fascination with a city through the myths, struggles, and identity of its Jewish community.
This movie was featured in Jewish Magic in the Art of Mark Podwal at the Jewish Museum of Prague, one of the Czech Republic's most visited destinations. I conducted interviews with the artist and textile fabricators, captured and collected video, audio and still images, and edited this movie. Originally a companion to the exhibition Old and the New: Mark Podwal’s Textiles for the Altneuschul in Prague, this movie features acclaimed artist Mark Podwal discussing his artistic engagement with Jewish Prague, and his ambitious project to design new textiles for the famed Altneuschul, Europe's oldest synagogue.
