Libeskind exhibition to open in Ostrava

Ostrava’s Dům Umění is readying to open a new exhibition on the work of architect Daniel Libeskind, best known for his design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the original plan (since modified by others) for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site in New York. The show in Ostrava will open on September 16. Besides many well-known designs, never-before seen work is also included, as well as an accompanying documentary. Next year the show will move to Poland. Ostrava cooperated directly with the architect’s studio in New York, but Mr Libeskind is not expected to attend the show’s opening on Thursday. An organiser has said the architect and his wife could visit at a later date.
