In May, about 170 people, including representatives from the Tel-Aviv City government and members of the local and religious Philippine community in Israel, gathered at Hayarkon Park in Northern Tel-Aviv to commemorate the annual joint celebration of Labour Day and Flores de Mayo.

Over a dozen Philippine community organisations participated in the Flores de Mayo parade, carrying flower arches and wearing costumes representing their hometowns in the Philippines.

The event, organised in partnership with the Philippine Overseas Labour Office and Overseas Workers’ Welfare Office in Israel, served as the Embassy’s salute to over 25,000 Philippine caregivers in Israel on the occasion of Philippine Labour Day.

Philippine Ambassador to Israel Neal Imperial thanked the community and the Embassy’s guests for joining the celebration, and took the opportunity to honour the contributions of the Philippine workers to the country’s development.

Art exhibition honours anniversary to Bauhaus E-mail

An art exhibition and tribute, entitled Less Is More: Israeli Art Homage to Bauhaus, is currently being showcased at the Diaghilev Hotel in TelAviv until end of July.

It marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus school in Weimar, Germany, which combined fine art with craft arts, and influenced both Israeli architecture and design in the twentieth century.

The exhibition is curated by Ilan Wigan with participating artists including: Zoya Cherkassky-Nnadi, Liat Elbling, Michal Levy, Ohad Meromi, Uriel Miron, Hilla Toony Navok and Nahum Tevet.

This exhibition showcases two-and-three-dimensional works which offer a glimpse of the history of Modernism and highlights both the conceptual and formal revolution that the Bauhaus school created and continues to influence to this day. In 2003, UNESCO declared Tel-Aviv’s White City neighbourhood a world heritage site due to it featuring the world’s largest collection of International or Bauhaus style buildings from the 1930s. There were largely designed by German Jews who had emigrated to escape the Nazi uprising.
