Space and spaciousness - an exhibition about Jews in Denmark

 The exhibition of the Danish Jewish Museum is a broad presentation of Jewish life in Denmark through 400 years, and is a selection from the museum’s own collection.


The exhibition was put together in close dialogue with Daniel Libeskind’s architecture; it is an exploration of three rooms. In the first room, spatiality is explored; the second room is the Danish room, and the third is the Jewish room.

Cultural spaciousness is both demanding and rewarding: creativity, debate, identity crises and ambitions have been fixed ingredients in Danish-Jewish life. Spaciousness is also diversity, because there are countless ways of uniting the Danish with the Jewish.

Look deeper into Jewish life in Denmark!

Use the menu to the right to read more about the Danish-Jewish experience from the first immigration in the 17th century to present day. The menu is in the same way as the exhibition divided into the five themes: arrivals, standpoints, mitzvah, traditions and promised lands.
