Ben Uri Gallery, the London Jewish Museum of Art. Norman Lebrecht writes, that it's 'drawn torrents of abuse from Jewish supporters of the museum, who argue (rightly) that the crucifixion image has been the incitement for 2,000 years of Christian persecution of Jews. The gallery counters that the man on the cross was Jewish; it's time to reclaim that heritage and discuss the terrible act from the victim's viewpoint'. It certainly sounds like it's worth a visit.
