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