The Panorama opposite the Bode-Museum, the exhibition project Pergamon: Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi will present highlights from the Antikensammlung’s holdings as well as a completely revised panorama by Yadegar Asisi.

The immersive effect of Asisi’s panorama, together with 80 ancient sculptures and new multimedia visualizations of the Pergamon Altar created by Studio asisi, form an exhibition approximately 2000 square meters in size that turns a visionary overarching concept – to make it possible for the contemporary visitor to see the city of Pergamon as it was in ancient times – into a reality. To this end, the temporary exhibition building was erected in February 2017 in the street Am Kupfergraben, based on Yadegar Asisi’s conceptual design and plans drafted by the architectural firm spreeformat architekten GmbH.
