The exhibition Pergamon. The Panorama more than makes up for the currently inaccessible Pergamon Altar, which is under restoration. The spectacular installation by the artist Yadegar Asisi takes students back in time to the year 129 AD. Could life in the ancient city of Pergamon have looked like this? Students explore connections between archaeological discoveries as well as between academic, artistic, and individual interpretations. They study the sculptures in the Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities) from various perspectives, reflect on their perceptions, consult sources and find relevance to the presentday. In creative analysis, they develop new narratives and alternative forms of presentation.
