Pergamonmuseum. Das Asisi Panorama

PERGAMON. Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi

PERGAMON is a journey to the ancient Greek city of Pergamon in Asia Minor as it existed in 129 CE. It depicts the Roman era under Emperor Hadrian, who spent some time in the city. Embedded in the 300 m high terraces of the Acropolis on a hill, the city, situated near the western coast of modern Turkey, boasted monumental architecture with temples and a theatre surrounded by a mountainous landscape. The Roman cityscape unfolds at the bottom of the mountain while the Mediterranean can be seen on the horizon. Alongside the emperor, Pergamon’s inhabitants are depicted going about their routines of 2,000 years ago in various scenes.

Thanks to a unique international collaboration with the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Berlin State Museums), an artwork has been created that combines the results of years of research with the work of contemporary artist Yadegar Asisi into a one-of-a-kind experience. Various well-known discoveries from classical archaeological collections in the Pergamon Museum are put on display so that visitors can immerse themselves in ancient life. This makes it possible for guests to experience what it was like to see the Pergamon Altar at its original location on the acropolis. The frieze, only pieces of which have survived, was also painstakingly artistically recreated and coloured in by Asisi as a ‘project within a project’.

The Panorama was developed in 2011/2012 as part of a special exhibition at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and will be reopened in Berlin in 2018. In 2016, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York displayed a video installation related to the Panorama.
