Tour with the Cura­tor of the Tem­po­rary Exhi­bi­tion We dreamed of nothing but Enlightenment

For Friends of the Jew­ish Mu­seums Ber­lin

Portrait collection of Moses Mendelssohn with visitors

The new tem­po­rary exhi­bi­tion “We dreamed of no­thing but the En­lighten­ment” has been on dis­play at the Jew­ish Mu­seum Berlin since 14 April 2022. The exhi­bi­tion pre­sents the Enlighten­ment era as an ex­peri­men­tal pe­riod of uphea­val when the con­cepts of hu­man rights, free­dom of opin­ion, and the diver­sity of indi­vi­dual life­styles were first arti­cu­lated and deman­ded.

With his argu­ments for the eman­cipa­tion of Jews, rights for mino­rities, and the sepa­ra­tion be­tween state and reli­gion, Mo­ses Men­dels­sohn opened doors to moder­nity – and raised questions about Jew­ish iden­tity that re­main very current to­day.

In an ex­clu­sive tour, cura­tor Inka Bertz will give you exci­ting in­sights into the tem­porary exhi­bition.
