The Jewish Museum Munich has been focusing on the Jewish history and culture of the city of Munich, the multiplicity of Jewish identities, and the present day, since its inauguration in 2007. In its temporary exhibitions, the museum explores different aspects of Jewish culture, history, and art by adopting new approaches and looking at subjects from a variety of angles.
The permanent exhibition, Voices_Places_Times, provides impulses and information on Jewish history in Munich, past and present, and invites visitors to engage in a dialogue. The voices of contemporary witnesses, ritual objects, photographs, videos, and comic strips in the seven installations, present Jewish history, culture, and religion in a new way and encourage discussion. In this way, the Jewish history of Munich has been turned into a visible and integral part of the city’s past, with attention also being drawn to the breaks and gaps in this history.
