The final exhibition, prepared by the Study and Documentation Centre for the 90th anniversary of the Villa Tugendhat completion, presents a professional media reflection of Villa Tugendhat after its completion and later in the 1960’s, when architecture theorists rediscovered interwar modernity. Curators Henry-Russel Hitchcock and Philip Johnson in particular contributed to the villa’s international reputation in the 1930’s, when it was included in a travelling exhibition The International Style at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1932. During the exhibition, you will be able to learn about the most fundamental theoretical texts written between 1931 and 1969.
The exhibition should be presented as a part of the 90th anniversary celebrations in 2020, since it could not be seen in the planned term (because of corona virus pandemic), we decided to extend the duration of the exhibition.
