The mobile exhibition “JMB on.tour” is part of the Jewish Museum Berlin’s outreach program and will visit schools and youth centers nationwide with a revised concept. The aim of the project is to introduce children and teenagers, who do not have the opportunity to visit the actual museum, to Jewish culture, history and modern jewish life in a contemporary, playful manner. By placing greater emphasis on the history of relationships and diversity within Jewish history and culture – for example, with regard to religion, gender, sexuality and Jewish biographies – as well as experiences of discrimination, the exhibition content, jewish perspectives and experiences become more relatable, even to participants without any contact to jewish people or culture.
The design of the mobile exhibition aims to be as accessible as possible and to encourage participation. The multisensory exhibition modules offer playful, surprising and easy-to-understand access and still leave room for the experiences and comments of the workshop participants. Texts in simple language explain what each module is about. By means of magnets the exhibits are attached to metal graphic panels, which supplement them with explanatory texts. This allows participants to touch and interact with them, while ensuring that everything stays in place when the exhibition is transported. The exhibition elements are produced sustainably, easy to transport and designed to be long-lasting. They can be set up quickly and adapted to the respective local conditions. Thus, with little effort, they generate a mobile pedagogical-museum space.
