A journey in time through the Matzo Island – a walk with photographer Josef Polleross and the Jewish Museum Vienna
For his exhibition at Museum Judenplatz Josef Polleross photographed religious Jews and their traditional rituals. His pictures also show secular Jewish life, however – sporting events, business and journalism, street parties, music and customs that animate and unite religious and secular Jews alike. What does the photographer like best about this area? Which address, which nook or which corner of Leopoldstadt caught his eye?
A walk through Vienna is a lesson in history – past monuments, historical buildings, or statues of people who have helped shaped this city in one way or another. A walk through Jewish Vienna is a confrontation with the past but also an encounter with the present. The 2nd district, Matzo Island, the former heart of Jewish Vienna, invites you to take a journey in time.
