Opening of the video installation “Wise Stones Falling into a Sea of Doubt” by Andrew Mezvinsky
In 2015, the American artist Andrew Mezvinsky created the video installation “Wise Stones Falling into a Sea of Doubt” for the exhibition “The University—a Combat Zone.” Now it will become a part of the permanent exhibition at the Museum Judenplatz.
For his installation, Mezvinsky worked with the Albertinian Map of 1421/22 and the Latin text of the University records from December 22, 1421, which stated that the stones from the “demolished synagogue of the Jews” were to be used for a new university building. “And here is a true miracle: the synagogue of the Old Law is converted miraculously into a school teaching the salvation doctrines of the New Law.”
