It is located in the inside square in the new AMIA building.

This monument was made in Tribute and Memorial to the Victims of the AMIA Bombing 1994 by the Israeli artist Yaacov Agam.

The work visually tells a story that begins with the chaos caused by the explosion, and reaches the present with the Jewish community and strengthened with renewed hope.

The monument consists of nine columns of 3.70 meters high and colorful profuse in which it is possible to discover different patterns as they change position.

The use of geometric shapes, not figurative, more than a style corresponds to the religious stance Agam, which preserves more narrowly the biblical injunction "You must not make image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or on the earth beneath or in the waters under the earth. "

Each of the nine vertical panels is worked on both sides, triangles and rectangles with vibrant colors and the assembly is placed on a large stepped shaped base Magen David.

The most notable, of course, is its kinetic concept of perception of the work, in this case, as in many other Agam, not for parts of it to move it is the viewer who runs across the perceived boundary and can even penetrate.

1- Destruction

4- Rainbow
