Rene Magritte, “La Victoire”, 1939, Oil on Canvas, 53.5X72.5cm

René Magritte always wished to extend the knowledge of the Real ,which is always galloping to the Unknown.

One must choose everyday a new horse, a new door and a new path.

Considering the radicalization occurring with reference to Judaism in Israel and Islam, we may remember that all beliefs and faiths are legitimate, as long as they acknowledge the fact that they stem from the common ground of all sentient beings.

Belief in a particular Divinity belonging to one race or another is utter ignorance and has to be decisively repelled, as it continues to be the main reason of the atrocities committed by the human race.

 

Provocation, cynicism, pseudo-sophistication, over-assertiveness and aggression leads nowhere, referring to any possible field – Ideology, religion, gender theory, politics or the Arts.

The absurd outcome is reflected in dreariness, vacuousness, and exhausting repetition.

Such energies never bloom but they might magnetize the restless who will enthusiastically join the joy of the poor.

About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
