GUIDED TOUR: "Bauhaus and Israel"

Dr. Karin Berkemann, curator of the collection

Approximately 100 years ago, the Palestine expert Gustaf Dalman, collected everything he considered special in this cultural landscape. From everyday objects to up to 20,000 historical photos. During the guided tour “Bauhaus and Israel”, Dr. Karin Berkemann will explain how the new building style had made its way across the Mediterranean Sea. With photos of Jewish settlements from the 1920s, the collection will take you back to a time when German architects were helping to shape the development of the new state.This will be followed by savoury snacks.
