Jewish Museum Berlin - Jewish life in Germany. Past and Present
by ARGE chezweitz GmbH/ Hella Rolfes Architekten BDA

Alexander Butz for chezweitz

In August 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin opened its new permanent exhibition in the Libeskind Building in Berlin.

In close collaboration with the curators, chezweitz created a separate spatial concept for each exhibition chapter that provides the content on an informative and sensual level, while at the same time repeatedly taking up the building itself conceptually and formally. In the new spaces, the architecture interlocks with the exhibits, art installations, hands-on stations, virtual reality offerings, and digital app formats to tell of the history and present day Jewish culture in Germany from an inside perspective.

This project has been longlisted in the exhibition design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
