Animal Sacrifice

Killing in Cult and Religion

20.05.-31.10.2016 10:00-17:00

Opening: 19.05.2016
Curated by: Barbara Porod

Killing animals once occupied a central function within ritual ‘performances’. The remains of around 1,500 sacrificial animals from the sanctuary at Frauenberg bei Leibnitz dating from the Latène Period form the starting point for an inter-disciplinary exploration of the psychology of ritual slaughter.
