The Six Day War was one of the major milestones in the history of Israel, and its repercussions are keenly felt in Israeli society and culture to this day, fifty years later.
Project Euphoria comprises five exhibitions displayed in the entire museum space. All touch upon the existential anxiety characteristic of the Month of Waiting that preceded the war and of its six days, and even more so upon the euphoria that overwhelmed Israeli society in the ensuing weeks, months and years.
The themes on display in Project Euphoria form a mosaic of voices sounded by artists of multiple generations and geographical spaces, using a variety of techniques: documentary photography, painting, sculpture, printing, and sound, video and installation art. This retrospective array is deployed over the timespan between the summers of 1967 and 2017
