This collection of postcards is a capsule of time and space, embodied in letters that were never sent. The imaginary correspondence traces the story of my grandfather David Wilhelm Pienaker Bleistift, a modernist architect who immigrated from Vienna to Tel Aviv in 1933, and myself, an Israeli artist currently studying at the Bauhaus-University Weimar.
It is a series of letters sent by me from/to different sites and buildings in Weimar, Vienna and Tel Aviv during the current and previous century. Architecture and our relationship with it reflects manifestations of identity and migration.
Through the letters I wish to reveal the hidden connections between our paths- the strive for better life, a feeling of displacement, struggles to adapt to a new culture and, above all, a passion for architecture as an expression of all that.
