Schatten der Reformation – Exhibition
On the occasion of 500 years of reformation history, the exhibition "Liberation and Persecution" in the townhall of Zürich confronts the reformation era and the present on a surprisingly personal level: ten couples, one historical and one living, face each other directly and convey an ambivalent view of religious upheaval.
Centre of the exhibition are persons such as an iconoclast, a nun, an abbess, a religious refugee and a farmer, whose different experiences invite a critical examination of the events. They are confronted by people from the present who, in turn, take their own look at the historical heritage and the situation today.
Exhibition Stadthaus Zürich, September 2018 until March 2019, organised by Stadt Zürich Kultur in collaboration with Verein Schatten der Reformation.
