Jerusalem – a city of modern architecture?
It is a city thousands of years old, the spiritual center of the three monotheistic religions, showcase for world history – but also a place of remarkable buildings of the first half of the 20th century.
The search for Jerusalem’s modernity and its specific architectural characteristics, spanning between the traditional, Art Deco, Bauhaus and the International Style, is an expedition through this city, off the tourist beaten track.
This exhibition and its catalogue, aim to be a visual aid for the often hidden particulars of Jerusalem’s architecture, which originated between the years 1920 and 1948
