The exhibition Frédéric Brenner – ZERHEILT: HEALED TO PIECES opened on 2 September 2021. In his new photographic essay, the photographer explored Berlin as the stage for a vast spectrum of expressions and performances of Jewishness, portraying landscapes and individuals. At the opening event, we had a chance to meet some of the portrait subjects and to photograph them standing in front of their portraits. We also asked them about their lives in Berlin and their hopes for Jews’ future in the city. The notion of “Jewish life in Berlin” is itself a construct and often describes a fantasy on the part of people outside the community. With that in mind, the multiplicity of portraits and responses to our questions may help to shift some of those ingrained ideas.
During the exhibition period until March 2022, more photos and interviews will be published here regularly. So drop by more often if you like!
