Presentation Secretary of Culture of the Government of Jalisco
Susana Chávez Brandon

In the face of the violent times where we currently live, Gaal D. Cohen’s artistic proposal presented in this catalogue makes us reflect, in an obligatory way, about our own existence.

Amen is a reflection of life in one of the most ancient cities in the history of humanity. A sacred place for three of the biggest religions in the contemporary world. Origin and beginning, not just of the philosophical bases of each one of these three cults, but also of ideological disputes and violent battles derived from the human need of imposing personal points of view over someone else’s.

Each of the photographs contained here is a poem, a prayer for peace. It invites us to think about everyday life in Jerusalem, about how it would be like to walk its streets, filled with common history and found ideologies, in consequence we stop to think about our own path.

For the Secretary of Culture of the Government of Jalisco, culture is a motor for communitarian development; therefore expositions like Amen by Gaal D. Cohen are an institutional exercise of recognition of difference, of multiculturalism and therefore, an exercise of self-recognition as a reflection of others.
