Opening of the exhibition Front Window - A Glimpse at What Makes Groundbreaking Scientific Innovation
March 6, 2018 - 13:05 to September 6, 2018 - 14:05
- The Knesset- Jerusalem

The United States–Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF) curated this exhibition especially for the Knesset Science and Technology Committee's room. The Foundation wishes to honor the contribution made by hundreds of Israeli scientists, alumni of the Fulbright program, to basic research, applied research, and to applications that contribute to society and humanity. The six scientists presented in the exhibition represent the diversity of Israeli society, a wide variety of disciplines, and the desire to break through the boundaries of human knowledge.

The images in the exhibit present outstanding researchers in their work environment, alongside objects that emerge from the picture in a separate window and relate to their research and the way they see the scientific-technological future that awaits us.

The front window images are conceptual, fusing the documentary photography genre with the museological tradition of presenting objects in display cases. The connection between image and object documents the researcher’s vision and ambition.
