A student project at the Institute of Folkloristics/European Ethnology at the LMU Munich

In summer 2014, as part of a research project, twelve students headed for different destinations across Europe on an ethnographical search for clues. The focus of their trip to the seven cities selected was to investigate different forms of the Jewish “lifeworld” and identity in Europe.

The students’ interests took them to such varied destinations as Istanbul, London, Budapest, Marbella, Warsaw, Umeå, and Reykjavik and, as different as the places they visited may be, the results of this project are heterogenous as well as multifaceted. The definition of the research subject is questioned and answered from the point of view of the students. A multifaceted kaleidoscope of phenomena, protagonists, and places is atmospherically condensed and traced in this exhibition.
