Exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem

The Old City of Jerusalem is dominated by churches, mosques, and synagogues. Numerous different Christian, Muslim, and Jewish denominations have chosen this city as their spiritual center. Simultaneously, Jerusalem is home to extraordinary political tensions, for it is claimed as the capital city of the state of Israel, founded in 1948, and of a future state of Palestine. The exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem addresses these historical aspects of this city where daily life, religion, and politics are inextricably interwoven.

Old Building, level 1


Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

Highlights of Jerusalem’s history from Herod to today are juxtaposed against modern-day perspectives describing how Jews, Israelis, Palestinians, and tourists inhabit and perceive this place. Works by international artists respond to historical events and political standpoints. Virtual reality videos familiarize visitors with a city that is remarkable and vibrant in every respect. The real-time documentary 24h Jerusalem will be shown in a film lounge.
