Magasin III Jaffa

Magasin III Jaffa is an exhibition space, a permanent satellite established by Magasin III Museum for Contemporary Art from Stockholm, Sweden. Magasin III Jaffa’s diverse program features both local and international contemporary artists. The space is located on 34 Olei Zion, in a residential neighborhood rich with history and cultural diversity, that borders Jaffa’s famous flea market. Magasin III Jaffa’s unique architecture enables passersby to view the exhibitions from the outside, day and night.

Our aim is to foster dialogue, diversity, and a visual and intellectual discourse through art.  It is our conviction that art and culture have a pivotal role in progressing democratic values. Our exhibitions and programs in past and present have dealt with matters such as language, locality and civil rights, prompting discussion on different communities’ everyday lives in a politically charged region. We offer different activities and tours to different local communities and engage with the public in all three languages, Hebrew, Arabic and English.

Magasin III Jaffa Books

Established in 2022, Magasin III Jaffa Books is Israel’s first bookstore dedicated to artists books from the region.
