Now Showing (From Feb 21) | Elections
The exhibition features political posters from the 1950s. During these years there was no television in Israel nor Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and the political parties publish their messages on posters. Many of the new immigrants during this period did not yet speak Hebrew. For this reason, the poster desing had a great importance.
This new exhibition is now on display in the Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv (until the next elections in Israel on March 23). Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook for updates and invites.
This exhibition – and our classic book by the same title about preservation of the Bauhaus buildings in Tel Aviv – presents color photographs of renovated buildings in the White City alongside historic photographs and architectural plans. The book’s compact design allows one to peruse it while touring the city, next to the buildings themselves.
This exhibition curated by Bauhaus Center founder Micha Gross has been shown in galleries, universities and other venues around the globe. It is our hope that all owners of buildings slated for preservation in Tel Aviv may be convinced of the feasibility of preserving their property, and that our next exhibition and book may present the entire White City as well preserved.
Visit the reprise of this Bauhaus exhibition soon in the Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv (next to Dizengoff Square). Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook for updates and invites.
Our new documentary exhibition “Russian Revolution and Architecture: 100 years of the Vkhutemas architecture and art school, Moscow” pays tribute to the work of the Vkhutemas School of Architecture and Art.
The school was founded in the wake of the Russian Revolution and was committed to building a better future, until its closing int 1930. Its progressive designs for architecture and art were far ahead of their time and impress even today’s viewers. Historical and political circumstances led to the fact that this “cradle” of modernism was hardly noticed, at least in the West. 100 years after the founding of the school, it is to be presented anew in all its significance.
This new exhibition will have its premiere in the Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv Gallery (next to Dizengoff Square). Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook for updates and invites.
