The five dimensions

Libeskind’s design of the museum rests on five concepts from the traditional Jewish world of ideas. In the exhibition, they have been made to correspond with the five dimensions of the Jewish experience in Denmark.

The exhibition presents all the facets of Danish-Jewish life through 400 years: from the Jewish upper middle classes to the working class and from Orthodox Judaism to assimilation. The showcases hold great works of Danish-Jewish artisanship as well as simple everyday items, each with their own story. The emphasis is on personal angles and surprising detail.

Reflection

The dynamics of a mixed culture such as the Jewish is becoming more and more typical for the entire modern society. With this exhibition, the Danish Jewish Museum will give its audience the chance to reflect itself in a minority culture and think about who they are as Danes and citizens of the world.
