58 Madregot Habikur Street, Ein Karem, Jerusalem
Sala-Manca group (Lea Mauas and Diego Rotman) is one of the leaders of the Jerusalemite alternative artistic activity of the last decade. The 11 Heara (Note) events which took place at different sites throughout the city between 2001-2007, each time for one evening and one night, brought the Jerusalemite art scene to life and served as a model for future art events which followed in other cities. Since 2009 Sala-Manca has been operating at the Art and Media Center in the house of Daniela Passal in Ein Karem, under the name "Mamuta", and continues to promote artistic activity of a political and social orientation.
For Haifa-Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Mauas and Rotman devised the project The Storage Room, as part of The Museum of the Contemporary which they recently undertook in the framework of Mamuta's activity. In The Museum of the Contemporary Mauas and Rotman intend to create a virtual collection of exhibitions that could be realized in any exhibition venue, anywhere in the world. They contacted Pil and Galia Kollectiv, an artist duo collaborating in London, and invited them to offer a proposal for the first exhibition in the collection. Here the extension of an invitation was elaborated and expanded: the museum invited Mamuta, Mamuta invited Pil and Galia Kollectiv who invited six London-based artists. For the realization of the exhibition the museum received directions from the members of Mamuta, who themselves received directions from Pil and Galia Kollectiv.
Group members: Lea Mauas, Diego Rotman.
