Jewish Museum Munich adds two of Terry Swartzberg’s “Munich kippot” to its collection

August 15, 2019

Two of the “Munich kippot” created by Terry Swartzberg will be incorporated into the collection of the Jewish Museum Munich.

Joined by its never-ending spate of moving, illuminating exhibitions, the collection of Munich’s Jewish Museum chronicles in imaginative and innovative ways Jewish life and culture in the city that has become home to me. The inclusion of my Munich kippot is thus a great honor for me – and truly appreciated recognition of my vision of a proactively joyous Judaism,” states Terry Swartzberg.

Located in the heart of downtown Munich, the Museum is a lively and enlightening venue for the presentation of Jewish history, culture, identities and lifestyles in all their great diversities and facets. Two of the Museum’s leitmotifs are ‘migration’ and ‘participation’.
