Exhibition design for ‘Kabbalah: The Art of Jewish Mysticism’ at the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam. Kabbalah means ‘receiving’. It is founded on a belief in an ‘original knowledge’ about God, Creation and humanity. In the twentieth century, Kabbalah began to reach a far wider audience, inspiring artists, writers, filmmakers and contemporary pop icons, both Jewish and non-Jewish. Different aspects of its ancient teachings are presented – even pop stars like Madonna and David Bowie have drawn inspiration. This is the first exhibition to showcase the many sides of Kabbalah in surprising combinations of historical objects and modern works of art.
Exhibition: 29.03.19 to 25.08.19. Curator: Mirjam Knotter, Production Management: Martine Stroo, Advisor: Alexander Gorlin, Interior Design: ROO ontwerpers, Animation: Anne Caesar Coding: Maarten Hunink
