form and light. from bauhaus to tel aviv

Yigal Gawze


The world-famous “white city” of Tel Aviv consists of 4.000 buildings mostly in the Bauhaus style. Yigal Gawze’s photographs show the traces left behind by the encounter between the Bauhaus and the culture of the Mediterranean. They pay homage to the spirit of the Bauhaus, to the avantgarde photographers of the 1920s, and to the relevance of architectural modernism in urban development today. In its astonishingly detailed exposures, this portrait of the luminous city reveals the political essence of the Bauhaus architecture.
