This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Gitl Braun, the child of Holocaust survivors was born in Haifa in 1950. At the age of three, due to the failing health and extreme poverty of her parents, Gitl was moved to a local orphanage where she received a strictly religious upbringing. At eighteen she married a young Rabbinical scholar with whom she moved to the UK in 1973. Having raised her eight children in the orthodox community of Stamford Hill, in 2001, Gitl enrolled in a Fine Arts Programme at Central St. Martins. There she developed the unique and innovative techniques of sculpture and photography that would later win her widespread critical acclaim.
