Mathieu Pernot @ Jewish Museum of Belgium
Mathieu Pernot – Something is happening
19.05 – 19.09.2021
“The Jewish Museum of Belgium presents the unique retrospective Something is happening of French photographer Mathieu Pernot (°1970, Fréjus).
Combining photography, video and handwritten material, this exhibition places at its centre a space-time as precise as it is emblematic: the island of Lesbos in 2020. Located in the Aegean Sea, a few kilometres from the Turkish coast, this island experienced a series of crises in 2020, making it a focal point of our history and our consciousness. It is for this reason that the Jewish Museum of Belgium has conceived this exhibition, an original creation that explores themes echoing the long history of Jewish communities: exile, violence, solidarity.”
