The Tel Aviv Museum of Art - or its western part called “Herta and Paul Amir Building”, which was designed by Preston Scott Cohen and opened only in 2011, to be precise - was hands down one of the most impressive buildings I’ve ever seen! I mean, look at that breathtaking architecture! Considering the art I specially loved Vik Muniz' exhibition “Pictures of Anything” - he reproduces (amongst other works) well known paintings (Klimt, Botticelli, Picasso, …) with materials like chocolate, waste, threads and the like. Quite amazing, huh? Also, I really liked Annette Messager's "My Vows" from 1992, which you can see in the last pic.
I’d discovered Anita’s ice cream parlor a few weeks ago on LikaMimika’s instagram and decided I would give it a shot - and I was not disappointed! Being a wholehearted aesthete I also adored the parlor’s amazing (interior) design.
Shalom! I’m back home from my trip to Israel. I’m not willing to make any statements concerning the ongoing political situation - all I can say is that Israel is an exceptionally interesting and beautiful country that has a lot to offer - from delicious food, friendly and outgoing people to a diverse culture and stunning landscape. My favorite places (besides the numerous Bauhaus buildings - mostly found on and around Rothschild boulevard) in Tel Aviv were the Museum of Art and Anita’s ice cream parlor - two separate posts are coming up in the next couple of days! :)
