Transferumbau: Liebling - Closing Event
The opening exhibition of the Liebling Haus focuses on the controversial Transfer Agreement, which established trade relations between the Nazi government and the Zionist movement, enabling tens of thousands of German Jews to immigrate to Palestine in the 1930s. The exhibition features works created for the Liebling Haus based on findings discovered in the building during its renovation and is the result of a collaboration between Ilit Azoulay, Jonathan Touitou, Lou Moriah, Nir Shauloff, and curator Hila Cohen-Schneiderman.
Join us on a special event, marking the closing of the exhibition and celebrating the launch of the research book The Lift, as we add new dimensions to the works through live performance, workshops, and discussions about writing and remaking forgotten historical narratives.
• The Fall and Fall of Mr. Button: A live performance of the operetta inspired by the tragic-comic story of Mr. Knopf, the clerk who left his mark and stamp on the goods coming from Germany. The event includes a conversation between playwright Nir Shauloff and music producer Avshalom Ariel.
• Fabric Story: Designer Lou Moriah hosts a workshop dedicated to storytelling with textiles.
• Hila Cohen-Schneiderman and Anat Seltzer talk about The Lift, a study of the project.
