Ma’achaz (outpost ; handhold, foothold ; stronghold) marks the first participation of Medinat Weimar at the Venice Biennale. Rather than adopt to the reality that the Jewish state in Thuringia does not exist and the movement for the state has no financial ability to rent a space and hold a decent exhibition (like the Palestinian and gypsy participations), Medinat Weimar decided in the spirit of Zionism to defer reality and settle with a symbolic Pavilion at Giardini.

We should do a Ma’achaz of Medinat Weimar in each country where the ‘Jewish question’ is present.

I proposed to Medinat Weimar this weekend in Santiago de Chile, where he exhibited a selection of Sao Paulo 28 Biennale
