1 June-2 October. The Jewish Historical Museum presents an exhibition of over 70 paintings by Jewish avant-garde artists from Romania.

The works date from 1910-1938 and many have never been on display outside Romania. Artists such as Victor Brauner (1903-1966), Marcel Janco (1895-1984), and Max Herman Maxy (1895-1971) shook up Romania's art establishment in the 1920s with their experimental approach which included surrealism, abstraction, expressionism and constructivism. As well as highlighting the important role played by Bucharest in the avant-garde movement, the exhibition focuses on the relationship between Jewish identity and radical modernity in Romania.

Daily 11.00-17.00
