An unhoped-for heritage:an archaeological discovery in Alsace

From Thursday 29 June 2017 until Sunday 28 January 2018

In autumn 2012, the extraordinary discovery of a genizah in the attic of the synagogue at Dambach-la-Ville in the Bas-Rhin brought to light thousands of documents and objects dating from the 14th to the 19th century, “saved from the skip” by researchers and volunteers. This genizah contained an extraordinary wealth of vestiges, both in their variety and their age.

Charlemagne Palestine

From Wednesday 17 May 2017 until Sunday 19 November 2017

Sculptures, paintings, visual and acoustic installations, films, concerts... Charlemagne Palestine’s exhibition at the mahJ is the first of its kind in a French museum. Combining past creations and his most recent works, his installation in the former stables takes us into the very heart of his fascinating universe, in which stuffed toys play a leading role.
