Locomotive Exhibition by Click Academy at Belsize Square Synagogue.
There is a pinhole photography exhibition taking place at the Belsize Square Synagogue in London on the 14th April – 17th May 2011. It is a retrospective selection of works produced during the Locomotive project by Click Academy in which artists Marta Kotlarska, Olga Głazik and Anna Udowicka
collaborated with young Polish and Jewish people living in London.
The Locomotive project was dedicated to commemorate and celebrate common Polish and Jewish heritage. The history of the Jews in Poland dates back over a millennium. Poland was home to the largest and most significant Jewish community in Europe and served as the centre for their culture, starting from a long period of religious tolerance and prosperity among the country's Jewish population. The Jewish cultural scene was particularly vibrant in pre-World War II Poland with numerous Jewish publications and over 116 periodicals. The Jewish authors of the period, among them Julian Tuwim, made important contributions to Polish literature and in Poland, generations of children have read the classic Tuwim’s children’s poem “Locomotive”.
The Polish and Jewish young people worked together and created illustrations to a children's poem, Locomotive by Polish-Jewish writer, Julian Tuwim, with illustrations inspired by the Chanukah celebration using the technique of pinhole photography. The exhibition will also reveal a new project that Click Academy is working on which is based on the notion of the moving image. To arrange to see the exhibition contact the Synagogue office at 0207 794 39 49. The Synagogue is open between Monday and Thursday between 10-4pm and on Fridays 10-2pm. The address of the Synagogue is: 51 Belsize Square, London, NW3 4HX.

The exhibition was financially supported by Polish Cultural Institute. The illustrations were kindly printed by AdDesignStudio in London.

Belsize Square Synagogue was founded in 1939 by a group of refugees from Central Europe mainly from Germany. It is an independent synagogue - neither orthodox nor reform and it occupy its own place in British Jewry. Traditional yet modern, its story after 70 remarkable years is still unfolding
