The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute is proud to present “Contagious Truths,” a solo exhibition by Israeli artist Tamar Nissim.
Tamar Nissim’s videos, photographs and installations explore how Western hygiene methods were interwoven with nationalist ideology to control women in mid-20th-century Israel. Nissim’s videos draw from personal interviews, archival research and testimonies to trace the effects of these policies on women’s bodies and lives: Mizrahi immigrants who complied to prove themselves civilized; nurses who enforced strict hygiene protocols; mothers whose babies were taken away in what has come to be known as the Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan Children Affair.
Visitors to campus must show evidence of completion of a brief Brandeis Daily Health Assessment prior to coming to campus. Upon completion, visitors will receive an email they can display upon entry. All visitors must be masked.+ More... - Less...
