Exhibition: Faith Travels by Streetcar

How do faith, norms and freedom relate to each other? Does faith necessarily imply a restriction of freedom? When and how do the beliefs of religious communities and secular societies become visible, and how do religious conventions as well as normative practices change in the course of time? Bringing together everyday objects from different monotheistic and secular contexts, Faith Travels by Streetcar invites to reflect on these questions. The exhibition focusses on the thematic fields of “clothing,” “food,” and “children’s toys,” showing that rules and norms limiting the freedom of the individual exist in all societies and are not specific to certain religious communities.
