Sculpture on the front court of the new Jewish Museum Frankfurt by Ariel Schlesinger (fellow 2014/2015)

For the front court of the new Jewish Museum Frankfurt Ariel Schlesinger (fellow visual arts 2014/2015) created the sculpture Untitled (2019). Schlesinger became well known for his minimal, always extremely precise interventions in everyday objects. He initially deprives them of their original function and, through his radical artistic interventions, enables new ways of seeing and experiencing. The familiar suddenly appears surprisingly different.

During his residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Ariel Schlesinger realized the Temple Solitude in the Solitude courtyard. At the same time he started to work with the artist and filmmaker Hagen Betzwieser (fellow design 2005/2006).

Hagen Betzwieser was commissioned by the Jewish Museum Frankfurt to film the process of creating the sculpture over a period of two years. The documentation will be part of the permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum Frankfurt.

The reopening of the Jewish Museum Frankfurt takes place on October 21, 2020.
