ART IN THE JEWISH MUSEUM OF BERLIN

The very original and symbolic piece of art of Katrin Kalden in the Libeskind Jewish Museum of Berlin. The visitors of the Museum walk on hundreds of crying or screaming like human faces, made of heavy metal, spread on the floor, in a narrow corridor, closed by very high walls of unplastered concrete. The walk in the deep corridor, stepping over these figures, create to the visitors a really strong shocking and imposing feeling.
