Germany: Menashe Kadishman Installation Shalekhet – Fallen leaves

Installation Shalekhet – Fallen leaves

In the Jüdisches Museum, Berlin, 10 000 faces punched out of steel are distributed on the ground of the “Memory Void,” the only “voided” space of the Libeskind Building that can be entered. Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman dedicated his artwork not only to Jews killed during the Shoah, but to all victims of violence and war. Visitors are invited to walk on the faces and listen to the sounds created by the metal sheets, as they clang and rattle against one another.
