Archiv Fundstücke: Henryk Berlewi in Bremen

Die Zeit Kunstkalender vom 03. März 1967:

Zitat: „Henryk Berlewi“ (Bremen, Galerie Hans Joachim Rewolle): Zwischen den rund 25 älteren und neuesten Arbeiten des polnischen Malers, die vorher in Warschau ausgestellt waren, hängt eine Photographie aus dem Jahre 1924. Berlewi vor den Bildern seiner Ausstellung, die im Automobilsalon Austro-Daimler in Warschau veranstaltet wurde. Das Photo soll einerseits die progressive Haltung des Malers demonstrieren, der Autosalon hat den Kunstsalon abgelöst, die Kunst drängt ins Leben, verbrüdert sich mit dem technischen Fortschritt. Die Aufnahme aus dem Jahre 1924 soll aber vor allem den Anspruch unterbauen, den Berlewi seit Jahren öffentlich und lautstark erhebt, daß nämlich alles, was der heutige Konstruktivismus, was Op art produziere, auf seine Erfindung zurückgehe.“

The Impact of Henryk Berlewi – Abigail Friedman’s Yiddish Pavillion

Brussels. Abigail Fridman who is an interior design student in Israel contacted the Henryk Berlewi Archive this month and shared her final project dealing with the Yiddish language with the Archive. During her research she noticed that Henryk Berlewi’s work and thinking was strongly influenced and focused on Yiddish culture. Inspired by Henryk Berlewi Abigail created a three dimensional concept that models her vision of a Yiddish Pavillion representing the culture through the art of music and literature. The vision is a modern interactive Pavilion where people can meet who have the same language and pass to future generations the culture of joy and playful way.

We are pleased and thankful that Abigail has shared the images of her Model with us and granted us the right to display them on the website of the Henryk Berlewi Archive. (Images Copyright Abigail Friedman)
