MEST: I ASK Training Programmefeatured

By AEJM / Ana Cahen-Eden on

This spring and summer, MEST offers an extensive hybrid training course of the I ASK pedagogical method. I ASK is a practical, step-by-step method for guided tours and educational programmes in museums developed by the Jewish Cultural Quarter and TACT Advisors (NL). Its aim is to increase openness for new knowledge and ideas so that visitors leave your museum with enriched experiences and more nuanced thinking about the themes addressed. I ASK invites museums to clearly articulate the impact they desire to have on their audiences and offers museum professionals tools to achieve that. To be inclusive of the diversity of points of view that visitors bring into the museum, museums themselves also need an open mind to apply I ASK, even when these points of view seem to be contrary or not so much nuanced.

Jewish Berlin in Narratives: Mine, Yours, Ours?

On display at Centrum Judaicum Berlin
-

On the occasion of 1700 years of Jewish life in Germany, the 350th anniversary of the founding of the Jewish Community of Berlin and the 25th (plus 1) anniversary of the Centrum Judaicum we are unfolding a mosaic of narratives, experiences, feelings and emotions. Everything centers on individual perspectives and personal relationships. What do Jewish Berlin and its history mean to each of us today? The exhibition explores, discovers and reflects on the history and narratives of Jewish Berlin through the multifaceted lens of today’s Berliners. People tell stories about other people, about the city’s past and institutions – and in their stories they inevitably tell us about themselves too. In a ‘narrative kaleidoscope’, Berliners share the stories of their relationships that best summarise ‘their Jewish Berlin’ with the help of objects, texts and / or short video sequences. (Everyday) objects, photos, paintings, memories and family biographies become vehicles for recalling history. In the… | Read more »
