Public School – Pax Israeliana



Public School started in September 2007 as a non-profit project aiming to make public recordings of live events in the Israeli scene, and became a blog, Pax Israeliana, that documented forgotten books about design, art and architecture.

The Pax Israeliana Index of Israeli Modernism is a reference index of modernist works and terms from the golden age of Israel, found online, quoted and scanned from a variety of books, catalogs and magazines. The collection aims to define a time period when the young state of Israel was shaping its identity, trying to free itself from the Levant, and artists, architects, musicians, filmmakers and designers helped establish Israel’s perception in the eyes of the western world as a peace-seeking modern country by studying and showcasing their work abroad and embracing European Modernism.
