BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Aircraft Carrier surveys the period between two crises of capitalism\, 1973 and 2008\, to understand the radic al change in Israeli architecture. The eventful year of 1973 marks a waters hed in the workings of global capitalism\, in the American strategic intere st in the Middle East\, and in Israel’s social\, economic and political str uctures. Together\, these elements\, shaped by territorial struggles and en ergy crises\, dramatically transformed Israeli architecture. The exhibition   deals with this transformative period and with the American influe nces through which its innovations\, and tragedies\, were enabled.

\n

The exhibition is accompanied by a book\, published by Germ an publisher Hatje Cantz and edited by the curators\, which contextualizes the phenomena in larger transformative processes. The book include Texts by Milton Friedman\, Justin Fowler\, and Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen and Visual works by participating artists and by Baltimore-based graphic designers Post Typ ography.
