Every year hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the Berlin Pergamon Museum for its spectacular works of architectural antiquities, particularly the Hellenistic Pergamon Altar with a 394 ft frieze. Excavated by German archaeologists in Asia Minor in the 1880s, it was dismounted and shipped to Berlin with the permission of the Osman sultanate, to be reassembled in the custom-built museum in the early 20th century. German photographer Thomas Struth, famous for his ‘Museum Photographs’, reflects the complex interrelation of artworks, history and public perception in his series ‘Pergamon Museum,’ comprising six large-size color photographs.
