The unique collaboration of the Antikensammlung of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Germany) with the artist Yadegar Asisi from 2011/2012 will now be continued: “Pergamonmuseum. The Panorama” will continue the exhibition project “PERGAMON. Masterpieces of the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi” – with highlights from the Collection of Classical Antiquities and a completely revised panorama by Yadegar Asisi.
The visuals from the first Pergamon panorama have been comprehensively reworked. In co-operation with the team of the Antikensammlung, the artist has conceived roughly 40 new scenes and woven them into the picture. An elaborate photo shoot in a Berlin film studio brought the work to completion in October 2017.
“PERGAMON. Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi” is a Gesamtkunstwerk: the product of a close collaboration between the Antikensammlung and Yadegar Asisi, it combines the results of many years of archaeological and architectural research with the vision of a contemporary artist and is guaranteed to captivate a multitude of visitors, just as its predecessor did in 2011/12. The combined presentation of the sculptures from the Pergamon Museum and of the Asisi panorama will enable visitors to feel as if they have stepped back in time and are partaking in life in the ancient city. For a short time only, the Pergamon Altar can be experienced here, in its original architectural context, on the Acropolis.
