until 30.09. | #2241ARTatBerlin | The Jewish Museum Berlin is exhibiting res·o·nant – a walk-through light and sound installation by the Düsseldorf conceptual artist Mischa Kuball from 26th to 30th September 2018. Kuball created the installation specially for the new exhibition space on the lower ground floor of the Libeskind building.

Covering a total floor space of more than 350 square meters, res·o·nant incorporates two of the five vertical voids that perforate the Museum building. These symbolically laden empty spaces form the starting point for the artist’s work, which refers to the materiality, effect and signification of the voids. Museum visitors will thus have the opportunity to re-discover these two voids, which have become something of a Museum trademark since the opening of the Museum in 2001.

In these rooms with 24-meter-high ceilings, rotating projectors cast light fields in the form of the outline of the voids onto walls and ceiling. By means of rotating mirror elements and stroboscopic light impulses, there arises, in the words of the artist, a “resonance between architecture and skin.” As an important element of the installation, several loudspeakers, distributed throughout the room, loop a series of 60-second-long sound clips – so-called Skits – which were composed specially for res·o·nant by more than 180 musicians.

Moreover, interventions expand the installation into the public space. Through projections of the Void outlines, the work connects urban Berlin with the museum space, thus overcoming physical boundaries.

res·o·nant live

As part of Berlin Art Week, the sound performance “Deep Space” by Juan Atkins will evolve in the res·o·nant installation at the Jewish Museum Berlin on 28 and 29 September 2018 from 4pm to 8pm. (Addendum from 27.09.2018: Unfortunately, Juan Atkins is ill and can not travel, so that the live installation on Friday and Saturday can not take place as planned, but the Jewish Museum has found an alternative: Instead, Mike Banks joins the sound performance » Soundspaces «in the installation.) At the same time, Mischa Kuball’s intervention “res·o·nant live” will transmit the installation  res·o·nant from the museum to Oranienstraße 1 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, where it will be shown from 26 to 30 September 2018. Links between Daniel Libeskind’s design for the Jewish Museum Berlin, its location in the urban space, and historical references to Carl von Ossietzky and Paul Celan emerge.
