res·o·nant LIVE

Urban Intervention by Mischa Kuball

For this year’s Berlin Art Week, the artist Mischa Kuball will expand his installation res·o·nant from the Jewish Museum Berlin to the city space.

With his light and sound installation, he plays two of the iconic voids of the museum building by architect Daniel Libeskind. The voids symbolize the physical gaps created by the destruction of Jewish life.

With res·o·nant LIVE, Kuball transfers the sharp corners and asymmetrical edges of the void in a floor installation. The intervention creates relationships between the inside of the museum and urban space.

Bearbeitete Entwurfsskizze von Daniel Libeskind aus dem Jahr 1989 mit der imaginären Achse, die das Jüdische Museum Berlin mit der Oranienstraße 1 in Kreuzberg (mit x markiert) verbindet.

Edited version of a 1989 schematic by Daniel Libeskind showing the imaginary axis linking the Jewish Museum Berlin to Oranienstrasse 1 in Kreuzberg (marked with an x).

As a site of intervention, Mischa Kuball chose the start of Kreuzberg’s Oranienstraße. He takes the reference to the poem Oranienstraße I by Paul Celan in Libeskind’s design of the museum building, where emblematic axes and voids are inscribed with numerous links to sites of Jewish life. With his conception, Kuball explores an additional space of resonance between the gaps as sites of memory and the Berlin present.
