The invention of New Babylon is the rebirth of people as creative beings and the revival of architecture as inspirational.

Three case studies: The Whale

Gallina Arbeli, Mai Omer

Let's say art is a form of organizing knowledge and formulating actions, designed to introduce new research and ideas to the public. How can arts and cultural institutions rethink the production and presentation of studies and theories, and how can the concept of an exhibition be superseded by an open, wide-scoped, and experiential knowledge-producing partnership?

Multidisciplinary artists, curators, scholars, and educators - self-employed or working for public institutions in Israel and abroad -  meet for a one-day workshop to rethink how a cultural institution functions, focusing on three studies as a platform for this discussion.

 

The whale was a playground sculpture, which stood in Charles Clore Park, located on the ruins of the seafront Manshiya neighborhood. The image led us to research the land the whale had drifted to and its various contexts.

Center's opening hours

Yaacov Kaufman’s Chairs

Over the past thirty years, Yaacov Kaufman has been collecting dozens of folding chairs, which he uses for a specialized chair design course. The folding chair must be mobile, hence lightweight, and featuring an efficient folding mechanism allowing one to carry it outside the home, accommodate guests, and easily store it. The chair’s design has to meet these requirements while achieving the fundamental purpose of a chair: to be comfortable.

Conference attendees can spend time in this practical design exhibition, featuring forty chairs from the collection. Visitors are welcome to touch: sit down, fold, move, experiment, and learn about the relationship between design and body.

Location: Liebling Haus, Idelson 29 

Center's opening hours

Ornaments & Mint

Dana Mor  

Succulent plants, with their sculptural-architectural formations, complemented the concept of modern architecture, favouring a functional structure over decoration and ornaments. The trend reached a pinnacle in photographs of international style buildings featuring windowsills adorned with succulents. Sir Patrick Geddes’ Garden City vision countered that with a functional concept of plants as a source of nutrition, healing, and vocation. In Apartment no. 6, we will examine the place of plants in the living system.

The School of the City: Meeting Pedagogues

Eran Eizenhamer

A hands-on introduction to the School of the City and its activities in the municipal school system in the upcoming school year. We will present the Living in the City program, visit schools, and experience crafts, architecture, and design workshops. The program, co-developed with the Education Administration of the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, has been operating in schools for the past three years. The curriculum develops aesthetic contemplation of our daily lives and actively explores our relationship with space - from the home to the city - through experiential learning practices based on architecture, design, crafts, and art. The program invites participants to look at their living space, understand how we all experience it, how it affects us, and how we act in it. The program is designed for first to fifth grades.

Location: Liebing Haus, Idelson 29

Frame study Program for Graduates of Art and Design Studies

Eran Eizenhamer and Ana Wild

Frame is an ongoing multidisciplinary exploration based on exercises and discourse; an education program for graduates of art and design studies interested in further learning, development, and dialogue within a structured framework, as they continue to develop their work.

 

Another class will open soon. Please leave your details, and we will invite you to an introductory meeting.

 

We are asking what framework do artists need to develop their work? Is it possible to take a continuous, multidisciplinary, communicative approach to artistic research instead of a project-based one? Framework strives to offer a space where artists and designers could operate, create, and acquire the necessary tools.

 

The program draws inspiration from the Bauhaus School and its multidisciplinary practices, which recognized artists’ need for skills and capabilities beyond their preferred medium.

 

Frame operates in an augmented studio, spread across an apartment, a building, a city, allowing us to examine action, time, body, and gaze in relation to space. Meanwhile, redefining the “roles” of participants, students, instructors, and the cooperative studio.
