A Clockwork Jerusalem at MK Gallery

a_clockwork_jerusalem_image_by_fat_architecture_-_sam_jacob_1.jpg.940x528_q85_upscaleMK Gallery are delighted to be hosting an in conversation event with the curators of this year’s British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Sam Jacob and Wouter Vantisphout on Thursday 9 October 2014.  They will be joined by Architectural Historian and Broadcaster, Kieran Long.

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.
