About The Exhibition
From Stonehenge to council estates, from Ebenezer Howard to Cliff Richard, from ruins and destruction to back-to-the-land rural fantasies, through architecture, records, books and adverts, A Clockwork Jerusalem explores how the international influences of Modernism became mixed with long standing British sensibilities. It examines how the traditions of the romantic, sublime and pastoral, as well as interests in technology and science fiction were absorbed to create a specific British form of Modernism.
