On the occasion of the 50th anniversary year of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention as well as of Erich Mendelsohn’s 135th birthday the “Erich Mendelsohn Initiative Circle” through ICOMOS Israel, ICOMOS Germany and in cooperation with a number of partners organize an international symposium on 21 and 22 March 2022. The aim is to identify the potential Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of Erich Mendelsohn’s work for a UNESCO World Heritage transnational serial nomination. For this purpose, experts will open new perspectives on Mendelsohn’s life, his architecture and influence, and will consult on strategies for the nomination process. The symposium is particularly interested in exploring Mendelsohn’s cosmopolitan approach to modernity and seeks reflections on his global impact, as well as on the theoretical positions and technical innovations in which it was rooted.
