On 23 August 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin is opening its new core exhibition. Until then the museum will be closed for renovations.

The Game of Life

Come and play in our exhibition “A Is for Jewish” (in German)

Taking a Jewish ritual object, the Torah wimpel, as their starting point, students from the Refik Vesli School in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district worked at the Jewish Museum Berlin with Seraphina Lenz, Anja Scheffer, and Hendrik Scheel from the artist collective sideviews on the topics identity, community, love, gender, and migration.

They considered the questions “Who am I?”, “What do my parents wish for me?”, and “How would I like to live?” and came up with their own format for their answers. What resulted is an interactive game of life alongside a pop-up exhibition they created themselves that invites visitors to explore changes of perspective and unusual life paths.

We now cordially invite you to join us in playing the game of life and then discussing the life paths that emerge.
