THE GODS ARRIVE IN GENEVA 

 

This autumn, the city of Calvin is home to the God(s): A User’s Guide exhibition, a journey through contemporary religious practices. A free exhibition that welcomes everyone! Based on an original concept developed by Tempora and approved by an international scientific committee chaired by the historian Elie Barnavi, a totally new version of the exhibition has been specially adapted for Geneva.

This exhibition about religions does not discuss theology or history. Both scholarly and artistic, it presents the religious experience in its universal (its questions) and specific sense (its many practices), looking at religion from the perspective of secularism through a themed approach (Divinities, Places, The Beyond and so on).

With around 200 valuable and everyday artefacts, photographs, artistic installations and testimonials, the exhibition takes visitors on a real journey through religion.
