Alois Breyer, El Lissitzky, Frank Stella: Wooden Synagogues
The Museum’s rare collection of photographs and drawings by Alois Breyer (1885–1948) of East-European wooden synagogues destroyed in WWII is presented to the public for the first time. The exhibition stages a dialogue between more than a hundred works by Breyer, Frank Stella (b. 1936) and El Lissitzky (1890–1941), showing how geometric abstraction transforms the language, narrative and beauty of the synagogues into a modern and contemporary idiom.
