FRIEDRICH ADLER: WAYS AND BYWAYS

FRIEDRICH ADLER: WAYS AND BYWAYS

First exhibition in Israel of works by Friedrich Adler
(Laupheim, 1878–Auschwitz, 1942), a member of
the pre-Bauhaus Deutscher Werkbund (German 
Craft Alliance), which believed in art's ability to 
effect a change in society and in the religious 
hegemony. The focus of the exhibition is a rare 
stained-glass window, also featuring decorative and Judaica 
works which reflect the innovativeness of early Modern 
industrial design.
