The 7th Festival of Jewish Texts & Ideas “Exploring the Future Jerusalem”
The 6th Festival of Jewish Texts & Ideas “InSight” will take place in Voskresenskoye Country Club near Moscow on December 5-8, 2013. Its thematic focus will be the in-depth study, “close reading” of non-verbal texts – films, paintings and dreams.
The aim of the Festival is to expand the practice of “slow reading” inspired by traditional Jewish textual study methods (e.g. midrash) to classical works of cinema, painting, and also to dreams as the subject of psychological analysis, insofar all of them have a semiotic nature and presuppose interpretation and commentary.
