OBEDIENCE 2

June 5, 2015

The Golden Room in the exhibition “Obedience” by Saskia Boddeke in the Jewish Museum, Berlin. Texts from Judaism, Christianity and Islam describing the Sacrifice of Isaac in red calligraphy on golden walls. In the foreground, glass cases with manuscripts from the three religions, open to the relevant pages. The video described in my blog of 22 January is projected onto the wall on the right. Expressive calligraphy in Hebrew, Latin and Arabic is edited together with choreography of dancers representing Abraham, Isaac, the Angel and the Devil.
