Exploring the Exhibition Frédéric Brenner – ZERHEILT: HEALED TO PIECES

Guided Tour in English

The internationally acclaimed photographer Frédéric Brenner explores Berlin as stage for a vast spectrum of expressions and performances of Jewishness.

Portraying landscapes and individuals — newcomers, old-timers, converts, immigrants and others who have made Berlin their home or were just passing through — he picks apart prevailing ideas and conceptions in order to explore new perspectives and offers a fresh view of issues and people in and around the Jewish-German story.

Where

Old Building, ground level, “Meeting Point” in the Glass Courtyard
Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

Frédéric Brenner’s images evolve from extensive research, observation, and many, many conversations, which have found their way into the exhibition in the form of a sound collage.

The guided tour presents the works as a profound and multi-layered snapshot of Jewish life today and invites visitors to weave the impressions into ever-changing stories.
