Synopsis: Acclaimed artist Yaacov Agam fundamentally challenged the accepted idea of art as a fixed image. Sayako Aragaki, once a curator for an Agam exhibition, elaborates on the Jewish aspects of Agam's work from a Japanese perspective.

Review: The author searches for the essence of the art of Agam in writing on his work and life by comparing the Japanese aesthetic sense with the Jewish, which despises the static image. --Tokyo Shimbun

Agam is the originator of the Kinetic Art movement. The charm of the Jewish artist makes us think of whether there is an original interpretation of the Second Commandment (Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image... ) behind the visual understanding, color construction, notion of time, dimensions and kinesis. And, indeed, Aragaki introduces Agam as the primary exemplar of this interpretation. --Prof. Gohei Hata's postscript in Judaism by M. Mollison & S.F. Brown

Sayako Aragaki's book recalls in a concise and vibrant way the various stages of a work which, during the last half century, did not cease developing in many directions, while remaining faithful to the vision of the artist. Considered in all its amplitude, it should be noted that the work of Agam is of an exceptional creative richness..., in permanent dialogue with the world of man and his environment, so that we can better become aware of ourselves, widen our visual and cognitive faculties, and look further into our relation with the world... But the work of Agam is also there to provide us joy... and l do not doubt that it will open our eyes and senses to realities which, perhaps, we have a presentiment of, but are still unknown to us. --Marc Scheps, Former director of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Ludwig Museum, Cologne.
