Synagogues, churches, and mosques shape our image of Jerusalem. The »Holy City« is an important center of faith for Jews, Christians, and Muslims from all over the world. Simultaneously, Jerusalem is home to extraordinary political tensions, claimed as the capital city by both Israelis and Palestinians.

From the age of the second temple to the Roman conquest, from Ottoman rule and the British mandate until the present day, the exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem investigates the history of a city where daily life, religion, and politics are inextricably interwoven. It includes precious objects and models that are on display for the first time in Berlin. They are complemented by media installations developed especially for the exhibition.

Works by Yael Bartana, Mona Hatoum, Gustav Metzger, Fazal Sheikh and other international artists respond to historical events and political standpoints. Interviews from the documentary 24h Jerusalem introduce visitors to a city that is remarkable and vibrant in every respect. Welcome to Jerusalem!
