A Clockwork Jerusalem

AA Gallery 9/5/2015 - 6/6/2015

Exhibitions are open Monday to Friday 10:00-19:00, Saturday 10:00-15:00.
Gallery Closed on Bank Holiday Monday 25 May 2015.


From Stonehenge to council estates, from Ebenezer Howard to Cliff Richard, from ruins and destruction to back-to-the-land rural fantasies, A Clockwork Jerusalem explores how the international influences of modernism became mixed with long standing British sensibilities. Through architecture, records, books and adverts, the exhibition 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.

A Clockwork Jerusalem focuses on British modernism at the moment it was at its most ambitious socially, politically and architecturally, but also on the point of collapse. A variety of large scale projects, images, objects and artefacts offer insights into the way architecture was central to manufacturing a new vision of society at a scale inconceivable today. The modern future of Britain was built from an unlikely combination of interests and these projects have changed our physical and imaginative landscapes.
