Alma Feldhandler and Julia Friedrich

In episode three, the painter Alma Feldhandler, born in a small town near Paris in 1996, talks to Julia Friedrich, Collection and Exhibition Director of the Jewish Museum in Berlin.

Feldhandler’s melancholic and somehow nostalgic paintings are characterised by a light colourfulness and maybe remind of works by Charlotte Salomon. Her images evoke memories of the history of the department stores, hospitals and tailor shops run by Jews in Berlin during the Weimarer Republic.

For her show in Berlin, Feldhandler was inspired by the photographs, paintings and artefacts from the Jewish Museum’s collection in Berlin. For this reason the painter met Julia Friedrich to talk with her about the “templates” she used from the Jewish Museum and what fascinates her so much about them.
