Golem

Von Mystik bis Minecraft

With its large exhibition on the most prominent Jewish figure of legend, the Golem (Hebr. גולם), the Jewish Museum Berlin has dedicated itself to a narrative strand that continues to inspire artists, filmmakers, and authors until today. The Jewish Museum Berlin is now presenting the wealth of possible interpretations of the Golem—from its creation based on a ritual of Jewish mysticism to the artificial creature of popular culture. In the extensive catalogue, experts from various disciplines present their associations with the exhibits. Excerpts from literary texts that have shaped the image of the legendary figure round out the volume.

Artists: Joshua Abarbanel, David Aronson, Fritz Ascher, Lynne Avadenka, Shai Azoulay, Christian Boltanski, Leonora Carrington, Michael David, Louise Fishman, Yves Gellie, Rimma Gerlovina, Mark Berghash, Valeriy Gerlovin, Jorge Gil, František Hudeček, Tobi Kahn, Anselm Kiefer, Krištof Kintera, Jules Kirschenbaum, R. B. Kitaj, Daniel Laufer, Ktura Manor, Mira Maylor, Marlene Moeschke-Poelzig, David Musgrave, Mark Podwal, Hans Poelzig, Niki de Saint Phalle, Joachim Seinfeld, Charles Simonds, Hugo Steiner-Prag, Jana Sterbak, Max Weber, Gert Heinrich Wollheim
