Book review

Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism is the first exhibition to look at the contribution of Jewish designers, architects, patrons, and merchants in the creation of a distinctly modern American domestic landscape. In the aftermath of World War II, the hub of world Jewry shifted from Europe to America. The exhibition looks at the cultural context in which many Jewish emigre architects and designers from Europe in the 1930-40s were welcomed and embraced into the creative communities that sprang up around the US. The story told in this exhibition gives remarkable insight into Jewish assimilation into American society. At the same time, Designing Home goes beyond a simple exploration of physical Jewish contributions to the history of modern architecture and design-an impact that continues today-to examine broader cultural and social themes.
