In Celebration of Daniel Libeskind’s 75th birthday

Digital ARTE Film Premiere and Conversation (Video recording of the Discussion in English)

Daniel Libeskind and the Jewish Museum Berlin (JMB) are closely connected: the museum’s new building was the first structure designed by the American architect to be built. At the same time, the spectacular structure isn’t just of interest to architecture fans — it has become an emblem of Berlin.

On the occasion of his 75th birthday, the television channel ARTE broadcasted Daniel Libeskind: Magier der Emotionen (“Daniel Libeskind: Magician of Emotions”, ARTE/SR 2021, 26 min.). The film examines Libeskind’s life, his work, and his strong affinity to music. Libeskind described the Jewish Museum Berlin as a musical answer to many of the questions left behind by National Socialism, as a building that unites the oscillations of space and the soul.

After the film there was a discussion with Daniel Libeskind, JMB Director Hetty Berg, and film director Axel Fuhrmann, moderated by Sonja Marx of Saarland Broadcasting.
