During the Grand Opening of the Liebling Haus – The White City Center, in cooperation with raumlaborberlin, we turned the Bialik Square into a setting for conversation and active listening in order to address the Bauhaus legacy and its influence on the City of Tel Aviv-Yafo to this day.

 

“Dialogue as Form” invites neighbours of the White City, festival attendees and experts to gather in small groups around a handful of tables. Situated under a weightless canopy, these intimate, face-to-face encounters invite them to immerse in deep conversation with one another. These simultaneous dialogues bring together multiple voices from spatial practices to converse about climate, trust, (dis)comfort, duration, presence, style, ownership, relationships and heritage channeling the creative energy of the Bauhaus into Tel-Aviv here and now. 

 

The format brings together experts both from Israel and Germany to contribute to a lively conversation about architecture, heritage and urban life.
