Blood: Uniting & Dividing

The exhibition (Oct. 12th, 2017
– Jan. 29th, 2018) presented the history
of blood as a symbol in Judaism and Christianity.

POLIN Museum enriched an exhibition, which was first held at the Jewish Museum London, by including Polish and Christian contexts, as well as presenting pieces of contemporary art, including Blood Cinema by Anish Kapoor, exhibited in Poland for the first time, among works of other artists such as Piotr Uklański, Moshe Gershuni, Bogna Burska, Dorota Buczkowska, and Eliza Proszczuk. About 45,000 people visited the exhibition, making it the most visited temporary exhibition at POLIN Museum to that point. More than 3,800 people took part in events accompanying the exhibition.

We would like to thank Grzegorz Jankilevitsch and the Jankilevitsch Foundation for their support of the exhibition and its accompanying programs.
