Presentation of newly discovered photos of the Ernst Löw-Beer villa and meeting with the patron of this year’s Meeting Brno festival, Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat.
Sometimes miracles happen. One such moment was when the husband and wife, Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat and Ivo Hammer, awardees of the City of Brno Prize for international cooperation, during the Meeting Brno festival 2017 received from their relatives of the Löw-Beer family a large while photo album of detailed photographs documenting the villa in Kalvodova 8, Brno – the last residence that the family built in Brno. The client was Ernst Löw-Beer, a cousin of Grete Tugendhat, owner of Villa Tugendhat and mother of Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat. Speaking about the house, the work of Vienna-based architects Rudolf Baumfeld and Norbert Schlesinger, will be the architectural historian Vladimír Šlapeta, art historian Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat and conservator-restorer Ivo Hammer, who will show the above-mentioned album and describe the circumstances of their US lecture tour.
Following the viewing of the photos of the Ernst Löw-Beer villa there will be an informal meeting in the garden of the Arnold Villa; the house will be open to visitors.
The programme will be held in Czech and German.
