Der Glaube fährt mit der Straßenbahn – Mitte Museum Berlin | 31.05.-10.07.2024

Editors’ Choice

Mitte Museum Berlin presents the special exhibition Der Glaube fährt mit der Straßenbahn on 31. May 2024. Norms and unwritten rules of conduct encounter and guide us every day in our private and public lives: in conversations and political debates, in our clothing or when shopping for specially certified foods such as halal, kosher or vegan.

The exhibition Faith travels by tram invites visitors to reflect on the rules and conventions that play a role in religious and non-religious contexts: Does religious belief necessarily imply a restriction on the freedom of the individual? How do religious and secular beliefs become visible in everyday life?

Using everyday objects, the exhibition looks at rules and conventions in the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam as well as secular beliefs. The objects on display show that rules and norms that restrict the freedom of the individual exist in all societies, but are constantly being questioned, renegotiated and changed.

The exhibits from different subject areas such as “food” or “clothing and fashion” are presented in a changing exhibition design by artist Tim Graeves.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication published by Falschrum Books and edited by Stefan Maneval. The accompanying volume contains a catalogue with annotated illustrations of the exhibits and supplements the exhibition with essays and interviews. Scholars from various disciplines (sociology, philosophy, Arabic studies, Islamic studies, Jewish studies and Protestant theology) have their say.

Introduction and participatory redesign of the exhibition
What do a wig, a baseball cap and a children’s kippah have in common? Why are there different Lego figures for girls than for boys? Can you also drink the Koran?
