„Outstanding 20th Century Heritage – How to Live in it & What are the Advantages?“

We herewith have the pleasure to invite you to participate in an online discussion event on world heritage sites of the 20th century on Tuesday, 6 April 2021 at 7 pm CET/8 pm IDT: „Outstanding 20th Century Heritage – How to Live in it & What are the Advantages?“

The upcoming online discussion is part of an international discussion series called „Context, Contrast, Continuity“ which the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (German architecture museum) launched together with the Max Liebling Haus – White City Centre in Tel Aviv, the ernst may gesellschaft, ICOMOS Germany and Israel, and DOCOMOMO.

The series started last November and the discussions were always lively and everybody enjoyed the exchange and different viewpoints and experiences. All recordings of the 4 events are still on view on the DAM’s youtube channel:  – 11.02.2021 – our first evening on world heritage of 20th century – 14.01.2021 – Ernst May Haus and Max Liebling Haus – 10.12.2020 – market halls Haifa, Frankfurt and more – 12.11.2021 – White City Tel Aviv and Neues Frankfurt today

For our next event – the start of the 2nd season of our series – picks up where we left of last time: world heritage sites of the 20th century. On 6 April we want to focus on community and communication. What do inhabitants think? How is the relationship between inhabitants and heritage preservation experts? What challenges and benefits do all of them see?

We would like to invite you to join the discussion and share your experiences. The key participants will be:
