Sonnets in Babylon – Venice Biennale – Spirit of Space

In this video from our friends at Spirit of Space, Daniel Libeskind talks about his installation for the Venice Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, entitled ‘Sonnets in Babylon’. The installation deals with drawing, an act that Libeskind believes is “the foundational art, and the mystery and the magic of all buildings and cities.” To Libeskind, drawings are akin to religious materials, communicating meaning without the use of a fixed language and each with its own power to shape the way we understand the world around us. At the end he gives a hint as to why he is so attached to drawings: ”I drew for many years before…

Jewish Museum Berlin – Spirit of Space

The Jewish Museum in Berlin is hard to forget. Its poignant impression pierces the memory and expands shortly after its initial puncture. Standing in stark contrast to the original Baroque building, its expression is immediately felt. Further, this project’s ripple has touched two additional spaces.
