Asisi’s New Panorama Leipzig 1813 Unveiled

Friday, 16 August 2013

Yadegar Asisi's new 360° panorama “LEIPZIG 1813 – Amidst the Confusion of the Battle of the Nations” is on display at the Asisi Panometer Leipzig,Germany since 3rd August 2013.

It is estimated that 600,000 soldiers fought against one another in this European battle, which took place in the October of 1813. The allies from Austria, Prussia, Russia and Sweden conquered the French troops, thereby ending Napoleon's campaigns of conquest in Europe.

However LEIPZIG 1813, with a surface area of approximately 3,500 square meters, circa 30 meters high and over 110 meters in diameter, is not just a battle panorama. It depicts the turning point of history from the point of view of the city of Leipzig and their citizens within its walls, in a highly troubled situation. From an ideal vantage point on the roof of St. Thomas' Church the visitor can look down and follow the events.
