A fascinating short film which critically examines and illuminates the design of the campus of the University of Ife in Nigeria by Israeli architect and former Bauhaus student, Arieh Sharon. The campus was built in 1962 as part of the Israeli assistance program in West Africa.

The film, which premiered in Lagos, Nigeria in December 2018 was produced by esteemed Israeli architect and architectural historian Zvi Efrat, as part of the "Bauhaus Imaginista" project. Efrat is a partner at Efrat-Kowalsky Architects (EKA), has lectured internationally, published extensively and curated numerous exhibitions- among them Borderline Disorder at the Israeli Pavilion of the 8th Architectural Biennale in Venice, 2002, and The Object of Zionism at the Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel, 2011.

The screening will be preceded by a short introduction.

In collaboration with the Embassy of Israel.
