Prologue: The exhibition 'Feel at Home' opened in September 2023 and dealt with an attempt to describe how we form a sense of home, who can feel at home today in Israel and to what extent. The exhibition was created as a response to the reality of Israeli society during a critical period that seemed to be the greatest crisis the country had experienced in recent decades.

The exhibition highlights the feelings of artists that represent entire groups in Israeli society, as well as works that express universal, human and personal feelings that make up our inner home experience, such as the longing for peace, harmony, tenderness and a safe place.

After the terrible October 7 attacks and the war that followed, the exhibition has become loaded with new layers, disturbing in an unimaginably prophetic way. At the same time, it also strengthens the feelings that make up a home within us. The works are interwoven with expressions and pieces that form part of a whole: personal notes, memories of home, a blanket, a private tool cabinet, landscapes and friends.

How can the same works be embracing and disturbing at the same time?  The explanation lies perhaps in the tremendous sensitivity of the works and their makers, as well as in the theme that is so basic and essential to all of us, and affects every aspect of our lives. Home is the ground and the foundation from which we grow. Home has a physical aspect, but our sense of home is not found only in our physical home, it is a feeling that is fundamentally related to security, feeling safe. The works in the exhibition refine a sense of a home that has suddenly been lost in so many ways.

We have the obligation to rebuild that home. Here lies the opportunity to rebuild it differently, based on the understanding that we all deserve to be a part of it and we have the possibility of making it better, together.
