The unique collaboration of the Collection of Classical Antiquities with the artist Yadegar Asisi from 2011/2012 will now be continued: In the temporary exhibition building "Pergamonmuseum. The Panorama", the exhibition project "PERGAMON. Masterpieces of the Ancient Metropolis and 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi" will be presented - with highlights from the holdings of the Collection of Classical Antiquities as well as a completely revised panorama by Yadegar Asisi.

The panorama takes visitors back to the year 129 AD and shows them the ancient city of Pergamon on the western coast of Asia Minor. Yadegar Asisi reconstructs the state of the city in the high Roman imperial period during the reign of Emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD). The image content of the first Pergamon panorama has been extensively revised. In collaboration with the team of the Collection of Classical Antiquities, some 40 new scenes were conceived and inserted into the picture. For this purpose, a lavish photo shoot took place most recently in October 2017 in a Berlin film studio.

Restoration and artistic interpretation

Extensive restorations of the originals were carried out for the exhibition designed by Studio asisi, which features around 80 of the most important works in the Pergamon Collection of Antiquities - including the largest part of the Telephos Frieze from the Pergamon Altar. This is especially true of the large statues of women from the courtyard and the sculptures from the roof of the Great Altar. With the exception of the statue of Athena Parthenos from the Pergamon Library, which has been loaned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, all of the city's famous sculptures, such as the so-called "Beautiful Head", the colossal head of Heracles, the portraits of the kings, the Dancer from the Palace, the Prometheus Group or the Athena of the Cross, are on display.

Various installations show visitors artistic interpretations for a better understanding of the ancient living world. Key elements here are newly created drawings by Yadegar Asisi that explore Pergamon's sculptures, architecture, and urban layout.

The Pergamon Altar in its original context

The Collection of Classical Antiquities is teaming up with Yadegar Asisi to present "PERGAMON. Masterpieces of the Ancient Metropolis and 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi", the Collection of Classical Antiquities is creating a gesamtkunstwerk that condenses the results of many years of archaeological and architectural historical research with the work of a contemporary artist into a single whole. Already in 2011/12, some 1.5 million people had visited the exhibition Pergamon. Panorama of the Ancient Metropolis. The overall presentation of the sculptures from the Pergamon Museum with the Asisi panorama makes for a unique exhibition experience that allows visitors to participate in the world of antiquity. Last but not least, the Pergamon Altar can be experienced in its original architectural context on the Acropolis.

"PERGAMON. Masterpieces of the Ancient Metropolis and 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi" is made possible by the generous financial support of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co.KG.
