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)
