Feeling and hearing History (in German language)
A Multi-Sensory Architecture Tour for Blind and Visually Impaired Students and Adults
26 February 2016

The walls slant, the ground slopes. The underground floor of the Jewish Museum Berlin, namely the axes of "Exile," "Holocaust," and "Continuity," affect our experience of space. Architect Daniel Libeskind drew on German-Jewish history in his design for the museum’s architecture. The labyrinthine "Garden of Exile" tests the visitor’s sense of balance and provides a metaphor for the loss of orientation in foreign countries. In the "Memory Void," iron sculptures to touch, hear, and smell remember the victims of terror and violence. The sounds in the axes and voids enhance the unusual sensory experience. Jonas Hauer, guide for the blind, says that, "the cold sounds are not comparable to those of any other building". In addition, tactile models of the building make this architectural interpretation of Jewish-German history immediately palpable.

When: 4 pm
Duration: 1,5 hours
Admission: 3 euros (plus admission)
