Description

An interactive exhibition that introduced the history and concept of the Golem, and invited visitors to discover a “golem” hidden in a tactile sculpture conceived by artist Petr Nikl. By drawing faces or symbols over the surface of the drawing board with their finger, and using light and music, the visitor attempted to “wake up” the golem within, and, while doing so, became part of a joint film that charted all efforts to discover Nikl’s version of this mystical being.
