The catalogue is a tribute to Teddy Kollek, and accompanied the exhibition that included works by famous artists from Israel and abroad, such as Niki de Saint Phalle, Oskar Kokoschka, Jean Tinguely and Kollek's daughter Osnat Kollek-Sachs, according to how they perceived Kollek. Some of them were impressed by him while creating their work, others drew upon a memory, image, or the deep impression he left on them. Kollek and Jerusalem were intertwined, as he wanted to shape the city in his own spirit. The exhibition and publication is a salute to and a look at the life of the man who left behind an unforgettable legacy.
