Religion. Healing. Dividing
Peace is the heart of almost every religion, but countless wars are waged in the name of God. Religion reconciles, but it also creates conflict. Despite causing conflict, religion offers a forum: a space for dialogue between people from different backgrounds and ideologies.
The thematic exhibition Religion. Healing. Dividing highlights the duality of religion in war and peace. Drawing on various cultural artefacts and older and contemporary art, the exhibition sketches the relationship between different religions, in conflict and in reconciliation.
