These photographs are a joint project by the photographer Michael Craig Palmer, who immigrated to Israel from the United States in 1985 and became enamored with the streets of the White City when living there in the 1990s, and the German architect and interior designer Ingrid Botschen, who has researched 1930s and 1940s International Style and Bauhaus architecture in Tel Aviv.
A new exhibition celebrating 30 years of friendship between India and Israel
How is it that two cities, which lay 4,000 km apart – share surprising similarities?
This new exhibition addresses this question with a fascinating combination of striking photographs and introductory texts.
In the 1930’s, a new architectural development took place both in Tel Aviv and Mumbai. The urban image of the city transformed into a modernist weave of new city fabric, with neatly laid out plots, uniform footprints and building heights, punctuated by skyline dominating facades of new building typologies.
This exhibition is a way of acknowledging the sorority of cities that shared an architecture of self-similarity, Art Deco in Mumbai and the Bauhaus Style in Tel Aviv. These are evident in cinemas, residential buildings, sacred spaces and more.
