100 Misunderstandings about and among Jews

The exhibition 100 misunderstandings about and among Jews traces misunderstandings about and among Jews, searches for the backgrounds, questions and parodies them or meets them with a tongue-in-cheek laugh. The exhibition is not about dispelling prejudices against Jews, but about asking about the underlying misconceptions and countering them on different levels – from the historical to the artistic.
