Frédéric Brenner:

Accompanying Publication to the Exhibition

Following more than forty years of photographic storytelling of Jewish life around the world, Frédéric Brenner spent three years exploring Berlin – a stage for a vast spectrum of expressions and performances of Judaism. The Jewish Museum Berlin premiered his new photographic essay, ZERHEILT: HEALED TO PIECES from 3 September 2021 through 24 April 2022 (read more on the exhibition).

In addition to the photographs, the exhibitionʼs accompanying publication includes two essays, a timeline of the project, and distilled fragments of conversations and texts Brenner came across — all part of his Berlin fieldwork exploration.

You can browse the first pages of the book digitally on the publisherʼs website.
