Max Wechsler’s donation of works to the mahJ consecrates the long dialogue between the museum and the artist, awarded the Prix Maratier by the Fondation Pro mahJ in 2003.
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.
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.
