Greetings from Golem

Stroll Through the Exhibition and Postcard Workshop (in German)

On our stroll through the exhibition, we get to know the golem’s different sides and consider the great themes of creation, creativity and power.
In the workshop that follows, there are no instructions on how to create a living golem, but the Berlin screen printer Martin Samuel will show you how to make golem greetings cards and print them yourselves – and then send the creatures you designed with best wishes out into the world.
