LABA Berlin is happy to be launching its third program year in 2023. Hosted by the Jewish Center Fraenkelufer Synagogue, currently engaged in constructing a new Jewish cultural and art center in Berlin, the initiative brings together a group of creative personalities – a mix of visual artists, writers, dancers, musicians and actors – to study and discuss classical Jewish texts in the heart of Kreuzberg. As a group, they will explore what the future of Jewish art in Germany could look like. LABA aims to promote diversity and contribute to making Jewish art and culture present again in everyday German cultural life.

LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program that was first launched in 2007 at the ‘14th Street Y’ in New York’s East Village.  The fellowship uses classic Jewish texts to inspire the creation of art, dialogue and study.  Participating artists use the forum to create work which is featured in a final exhibition and performance series, and is also featured digitally. Every year LABA focuses its study around a theme. Previous themes include Paradise, Eros, Blueprint, Eat, Mother, Time, Beauty, Other, and Chosen. The theme for 2023 is Taboo.
