MAGASIN III PLAY: SIROUS NAMAZI

We are profoundly shaken by the brutal terrorist attack on Israel on October 7, and we unequivocally condemn this act. The ensuing human suffering in the region, fueled by an escalating and severe spiral of violence, can never pave the way to understanding or coexistence. Currently, our thoughts and unwavering support are with our fantastic colleagues in Israel, their families, all the artists we have collaborated with, and all our cherished friends in the Middle East.
Magasin III Jaffa, our exhibition satellite in Israel, was established in 2018 and is situated in a predominantly Arab area of the port city of Jaffa, just 10 minutes from Tel Aviv. Our aim is to foster dialogue, diversity, and a visual and intellectual discourse through art. We firmly believe that these values will assume even greater significance in the region once a state of war no longer prevails. It is our conviction that art and culture have a pivotal role in progressing democratic values. Now, more than ever, our work will embody trust and aid in healing the relentless traumas of societies.
Magasin III Museum for Contemporary Art condemns the invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s heinous military actions are a violation of human rights and a war against the entire civilized world and its democratic values. This war must be stopped immediately, and human lives saved.
We are also deeply concerned about what the armed conflict means for Ukraine’s cultural heritage and cultural life. Buildings, collections and objects are exposed to enormous risks and, at worst, utter destruction.
Our colleagues in Ukraine are fighting to protect and preserve the country’s cultural heritage for future generations.
We believe in free thought. We believe in the ability of art and culture to inspire and bring people together. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and its courageous people.
