The current panoramic exhibition by Berlin artist Yadegar Asisi takes you back in time to the small French town of Rouen at the end of the 19th century. Immerse yourself in a world of colour, light and shadow and look forward to an extraordinary exhibition experience for young and old that you will certainly not forget in a hurry.

The Panorama


With the 32 metre high 360° panorama "THE CATHEDRAL OF MONET - Freedom of Painting", Yadegar Asisi invites you on a picturesque journey to the French city of Rouen around 1890. The focus is on the city's impressive cathedral, which was immortalised by the painter Claude Monet in a series of 33 paintings. Inspired by this, Asisi created his first painted panorama on a canvas measuring 6 x 2 metres (in impressionist style) - which was subsequently digitised and enlarged to an impressive 32 × 110 metres for the Panometer Leipzig.

The circular picture shows the typical everyday life of the time: residents stroll through the alleyways in front of the cathedral, the first tram can be seen, traders sell their goods. At the same time, numerous painters of the era - such as van Gogh, Renoir and Monet - are hidden in the 360° artwork. Background noises and music that reflect the atmosphere of the late 19th century as well as a day and night light simulation bring France's past to life. Viewing takes place at ground level or from the various levels of the 15 metre high visitor platform.

The accompanying exhibition


Anyone who has already seen a panorama by Yadegar Asisi in Leipzig knows that the exhibition experience is always rounded off with a multimedia exhibition and a concluding film (approx. 30 minutes). In the current accompanying exhibition, he is now opening up his studio for the first time and providing a glimpse into his personal workshop with over 200 works from more than 30 years of artistic creation.
New techniques, such as the development of the camera in the 19th century, have massively changed the art world in the past and led to new freedoms and styles in art, such as Impressionism with its colours, play of light and shadow. Today, something similar is happening with the advent of artificial intelligence (AI). However, instead of feeling threatened by this, Yadegar Asisi has always utilised technological advances to incorporate them into his artistic work. The accompanying exhibition illustrates this interaction between painting and technology in a captivating way.

The museum


"When a panorama meets a gasometer, then a gasometer becomes a panometer." - The success story of Yadegar Asisi's panoramas began back in 2003 in Leipzig. Asisi's first panorama - 8848 EVEREST - was shown in a converted gasometer.

After a sensational success with visitors, the location developed into the artist's first exhibition centre. Since then, popular panoramas such as AMAZONIA, LEIPZIG 1813 and TITANIC have been on display at the Panometer Leipzig. The current panorama THE CATHEDRAL OF MONET is expected to be on display at Panometer Leipzig for 1.5 years.
