“Jews, Money, Myth” is a major exhibition exploring the role of money in Jewish life. Examining the ideas, myths and stereotypes that link Jews and money over the course of 2,000 years, the exhibition draws together art, film, literature and cultural ephemera from board games and cartoons to costumes and figurines. Two years in development, the origins of anti-Semitism are challenged using real and imagined stories of Jews – in finance, commerce and capitalism – up to the present day. Artwork includes Rembrandt’s privately owned first masterpiece “Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver” and new commissions by Jeremy Deller and Doug Fishbone.
Opening in a couple of weeks, “Great British Jews: A Celebration” is a playful exhibition celebrating the huge contribution that Jews have made to this country across a variety of cultural, scientific and commercial fields.
