According to ethnologists, there are several thousand living religions in the world today. By the number of followers, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and traditional Chinese religions are the main ones. Influenced by mass communication and migratory movement, religion, like other social phenomena, has become globalized.
The exhibition God(s): A User’s Guide offers visitors experiential insights—through a combination of 225 sacred objects and other artifacts, sounds, multimedia, lighting and interactive elements—into the practices and beliefs of the world’s major religions. Its 11 themes bring into focus how the universality of spiritual questioning is expressed through specific and diverse religious practices. The exhibition is not about theology or the history of religions; it concentrates on contemporary religious practices
Exhibition Themes include: Point of Reference, Divinities, Passages, Worship, Places, Body, Cycles, Beyond, Intersessors, Conflicts and Coexistence
