About the exhibition

Even today, church and art have more in common than it may seem at first glance: both help shape society, create social identity and provoke discussions of the same. The exhibition seeks out possible connections between temporal and secular zones, it explores forms of artistic engagement with images and values forged by Christianity.

Using specific projects that deal with museums and church institutions in situ, the exhibition plumbs a rich heritage of church-created traditions, throwing light on current social challenges. What duties do the divine virtues of faith, love and hope demand these days of a society so varied in thought and faith?

With the works of some 30 artists and with projects by Maja Bekan, Thomas Bayrle, Birgit Jürgenssen, Kris Martin, Muntean/Rosenblum, Slavs and Tatars, Karol Radziszewski, Danh Vo among others.
