The Pavilion exhibition, titled “A Clockwork Jerusalem”, explores how the international influences of Modernism became mixed with long standing British sensibilities. It examines how traditions of the romantic, sublime and pastoral, as well as interests in technology and science fiction were absorbed to create a specifically British form of Modernism.

The talk will prove to be fascinating for anyone with an interest in British Modernism, and, of course, the urban history of Milton Keynes.  Tickets are free but pre booking is essential.
