My recent published paper comes to provide a detailed scholarly appraisal of the conceptualization of domestic interiors between 1960 and 1977, two of the most formative decades of Israel's history. It examines the 'designed' home, its comparative analysis to the ‘ordinary’ home, and its material culture. It focuses on aesthetic choices, methodologies, and practices that highlighted the role of the home as a theater for staging, creating, and mirroring identities, and as a laboratory for national boundaries. Published in Journal of Interior Design. The images are of interiors by Dora Gad, Israel's leading interior designer of the period.
