BERLIN - MEMORIAL TO THE MURDERED JEWS OF EUROPE

Berlin again.

I ever wanted to go to the memorial of the murdered Jews during WW 2 - this time I made it! And it's indeed very impressive. The idea of placing more than 2.500 stoneblocks one next to the other sounds kind of radical.

According to Peter Eisenman's (the architect) project text, the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason. (wikipedia)
