The Jewish Museum Berlin is currently showcasing their largest exhibition yet, “Welcome to Jerusalem”, a new multimedia exhibition that illustrates the complex identity of the Holy City, from ancient times to the present day. Designed by Kossmann.dejong, the exhibition is located in the museum's old Baroque entrance building (which is also the main exhibition space in the Libeskind-designed extension). Visitors will encounter a series of 15 thematic spaces where they'll find temple models, modern art, film, and multimedia installations.
Read on for more about the exhibit.
“Visitors are introduced to the story of Jerusalem through a special soundscape while entering the first floor. The story is told from different but interwoven perspectives: the city as a holy place for the three monotheistic religions for two thousand years and the city as a political battle field between power and territory.”
Certain sections of the exhibition feature immersive film experiences, such as the 360-degree film installation dedicated to “Conflicts” (created by Tungsten Pro / Martin Grootenboer). The “Augmented Temple” installation by ART+COM combines AR films and projections on a large-scale model of a temple, as if to "bring the destroyed Jewish temples of Temple Mount back to life".
Another can't-miss feature is the documentary “24 Hours Jerusalem” by Berlin film director Volker Heise. The film offers a personal encounter with local residents of different ages, religions, and political background.
“Welcome to Jerusalem” will be on display until April 30, 2019.
