Collecting Images [08]

That Certain Jewish Something
June 22, 2008 through August 31, 2008


To conclude the exhibition series COLLECTING IMAGES [01-08], the Jewish Museum Munich is staging "That Certain Jewish Something" together with visitors to the museum.
The structure of this show is highly unusual: Through invitations and calls to friends of the museum and visitors, the public is being actively encouraged to help shape the exhibition and bring along an object which has "that certain Jewish something" about it, together with a brief history of the item.
The collection of at least 120 objects that will be formed comprises the obvious and the unexpected, the traditional and the puzzling, and will provide a multifaceted view into a very personal and modern picture of Judaism.


Idea and Concept: Katarina Holländer and Michael Guggenheimer
