Pergamonmuseum. Das Panorama

The exhibition project PERGAMON. Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi has received a Red Dot Design Award. In the category “Spatial Communication and Exhibition Design, 2019”, the Studio asisi’s unique exhibition project with a panorama by Yadegar Asisi for the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities) has effectively convinced the international jury.

Following a previous award in 2012, the coveted Red Dot Design Award has been granted a second time for the high-quality design and creative feat for the exhibition PERGAMON. Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi. Altogether, 8,697 contributions were examined, discussed and evaluated in this year’s international competition.

The exhibition

The combined presentation of the sculptures from the Pergamonmuseum 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. The panorama takes visitors back to the year AD 129, showing the ancient city of Pergamon on the west coast of Asia Minor. Yadegar Asisi reconstructs the city as it was during the time of the High Roman Empire under the rule of the Emperor Hadrian (AD 117–138). 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. The parallel exhibition has been planned by Studio asisi and incorporates approximately 80 of the Antikensammlung’s most important works from Pergamon – including the largest piece of the Telephos frieze from the Pergamon Altar.
