The Adventures of the Lucky Jew: Where Art meets Activism

LIn 2017, FestivALT premiered their “Lucky Jew” performance, responding to the problematic practice of figurines of Jews with coins being sold for “good luck”. In 2021, the City of Krakow publicly stated that these figurines are antisemitic. “The Adventures of the Lucky Jew” is an exhibition chronicling how FestivALT’s Lucky Jew performance became an essential catalyst for a campaign of activism that led to the City taking this new official position, and how art has the genuine ability to make meaningful change. 

The City of Krakow’s open letter containing their statement will be on display at the exhibition. You may choose to add your name to the list of signatories.
Date: Saturday, June 26th – Sunday, July 4th, 2021
Time: 12:00-20:00
Location: 38 Józefa St., Wysoka Synagogue, ground floor
This event is part of FestivALT’s 5th edition programme!
