Jewish Country Houses


urKultur is partnering with the University of Oxford on a research programme led by historian, Professor Abigail Green. The Jewish Country House Project aims to establish Jewish country houses as a focus for research, a site of European memory, and a significant aspect of European Jewish heritage and material culture. urKultur is working with the University of Oxford and consortium partners to develop a series of artistic commissions which will help open the subject to a wider audience. The first commission, already awarded a Creative Industries Seed Fund Award, is a new body of work by prizewinning architectural photographer Hélène Binet. Additional commissions are planned.
