Festival Musrara Mix #14: Analog-Epilog
The MusraraMix festival is an international multidisciplinary event that takes place in the borderline neighborhood of Musrara, initiated and produced by the Naggar school of Art, Musrara. The festival is a hub of artistic and social happenings, embodying the political and cultural essence of Jerusalem and Israel. Every year the festival is based around one theme. The 14th year of the festival is the year of Analog-Epilog.
The festival expresses the school’s outlook. We believe in the significant role the creative process has, when it turns our gaze onto society and the identities that structure it. We believe in the power the festival has, as part of the educational process of the students.
The Naggar school of art, Musrara, invites the public to participate in the events taking place during the festival, to experience the neighborhood, explore its streets, be a guest in the backyards, meet the residents and enjoy some of the best multidisciplinary art made in Israel and the world today. The Naggar school of art, Musrara, invites you to take part in each of the events of the festival, to experience the neighborhood, tour its alleys, be a guest in the backyards, meet the residents and enjoy some of the best interdisciplinary art made in Israel and the world today.

We would like to thank our partners: firstly the residents of Musrara, the public funds and organizations from Israel and abroad that sponsor our activity, and of course our students, teachers and school staff.

Neighborhood Exhibition "Analog-Epilog" 20- 22/5 2014, 7pm-11pm (19:00-23:00)

The exhibition “Analog-Epilog” deals with the borders between analog and digital media, between the virtual and the tangible, as well as between the social, economic and artistic mechanisms that operate within these realms. The festival gathers artists who have been researching the world of analog images and sounds versus the contemporary reality and digital world in which we exist and act. The art works utilize a variety of methods in order to analyze the transition from analog to digital and they describe a wide range of uses of technology, through imaginative tools and content.

The Naggar School of Art, Musrara, Jerusalem - The people create the difference!
The Naggar school of Photography, New-Media, New-Music, Visual Communication and Phototherapy in Musrara, Jerusalem, was set from the beginning to function as an institute with a different nature - open to it's environment, inspecting new approaches and dealing with important issues concerning society in Israel. Early influences on the school’s spirit are the myths connected to the neighborhood of Musrara: its past as a border of the pre 67 war Israel, as an impoverished place and as a ground for social struggle. All of these are integrated in the school’s being and vision.
