MORITZ DANIEL OPPENHEIM – The First Jewish Painter (2016 | 96 min.)
Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, “the painter of the Rothschilds & the Rothschild of painters“, was not only the first Jewish artist with an academic background, but also an icon of Jewish emancipation in Germany. Young filmmaker Isabel Gathof searches out Oppenheim’s descendants and heritage in Germany, France and Israel, on the occasion of the world’s first monument built to the artist. Oppenheim was born in 1882 in Frankfurt am Main. He is often regarded as the first Jewish painter of the modern era. His work was informed by his cultural and religious roots at a time when many of his German Jewish contemporaries chose to convert to Christianity.
Guest Speaker: Director Isabel Gathof
After an apprenticeship at Saatchi & Saatchi Frankfurt as an advertising sales manager, Isabel studied at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF München). In 2011 she formed her own production company FEINSHMEKER FILM. “Moritz Daniel Oppenheim“ is her fourth work as a director, fifth production with FEINSHMEKER FILM and first feature length documentary film.

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
