form and light. from bauhaus to tel aviv
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.

Wer war der geniale Bauhaus-Künstler, der Meister der Farben und Formen und Erfinder des legendären Triadischen Balletts? Das Kinderkunstbuch Tribal tanzt widmet sich mit kindgerechtem Schwung Oskar Schlemmer und seinen Kunstwerken, welche die Fantasie von Klein und Groß beflügeln.
Anni Albers was an extraordinarily diverse artist who established the old craft of weaving as an art form and combined it with modern artistic practices. She studied at the Bauhaus in the 1920s, where her husband, Josef Albers, was a teacher. Following their emigration to the USA, both began teaching at the legendary Black Mountain College. It was there that Anni Albers created many of her unique woven pictures, graphic prints and jewellery designs. She experimented with new materials and designed textiles for production.
