BERLIN – An immersive double-exhibition in Berlin that takes viewers on a journey back to an ancient Roman city through a digital reconstruction of the metropolis and selection of objects from the period was previewed on Friday.
The exhibition was the result of a partnership during 2011 and 2012 between artist Yadegar Asisi and the Collection of Classical Antiquities of Berlin featuring a digital reconstruction of the ancient city of Pergamon as it would have been during Emperor Hadrian’s rule (AD 117-138), embellished with ancient treasures from the antiquities collection.
The 2012 installation has been revamped with 40 new scenes as well as a reworking of the original visuals, a statement on the Pergamon Museum which houses the exhibition said.
As well as the 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi a complimentary exhibition of ancient sculptures, a piece of the Telephos frieze, and objects from the Collection of Classical Antiquities of Berlin, are also featured.
Pergamon: Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis with a 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi is on at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin from Nov. 17.
