Objects of Faith (GLAUBENSDINGE)

Objects of Faith (GLAUBENSDINGE)

Online exhibition

What does the younger generation believe in? What role does religion play for twelve- and thirteen-year-olds, who have grown up in Basel in spiritually and aesthetically intercultural families? Together with school classes, Objects of Faith — which in the German both means «objects of faith» and «matters of faith» — examines religious diversity as both an opportunity and a challenge in today’s society. Against the backdrop of the Judaica collection of the Jewish Museum, museologists and young students placed their own “objects of faith” under the loupe. In five workshops with 21 students, one teacher, ten Museum employees, two religion experts and one programmer, we collected inventory cards, sketches, polaroids, poems, quotes and interviews, a collection that culminated in an online exhibition. What was the result? The youth were able to better understand the things that have shaped their identities, and the adults were afforded a glimpse at how the young people think about the future of their religion.

This online exhibition was conceived and developed by the Jewish Museum of Switzerland and supported by:
