At the meeting we moved to Tel Aviv in the 1930s for the Levant Fair. The event offered invited countries an opportunity to showcase their achievements: they built national pavilions and displayed advancements in their culture and economy to stimulate trade. Poland took an active part in the Levant Fair.


Dr. Artur Tanikowski’s book and film, “The Eagle and the Winged Camel. Poland at the Levant Fair in Tel Aviv 1932–1936”, introduce an important episode of Polish modernism, showing the evolution of styles, creators and designers of subsequent Polish pavilions, and offering a glimpse at the cultural and economic background of the interwar period.
