Born in images

5.05.23 - 22.10.23

This exhibition takes us through the history of the image: from the first Christian images – abstract symbols – to the hundreds of portraits of Christ from the 16th century and later, and all of this in dialogue with the image – or rather lack of it – in Judaism and Islam.

Beyond belief

In this exhibition you will discover that many contemporary idioms, symbols, holidays and customs are shaped by Christian traditions present in our region. Even when at first glance you would not connect them to religion at all.
