Tartu City Museum will be opening a new exhibition titled “Tartu – a City of Many Faiths” on May 22nd.
The exhibition focuses on the many traditional and alternative religious movements present in Tartu during the 20th and the 21st centuries. The exhibition shows how spiritualism, Eastern religious traditions and theosophy became popular among the intellectual circles of the young Republic of Estonia in the 1920s and 1930s, how the Soviet officials tried to put an end to all religious life in the second half of the 20th century and how colourful and diverse the religious life in Tartu is today.
Curators: Nele Dresen, Silver Kaldma, Siim Lill
Design: Maarja Meeru (Theatre of Vanemuine)
The exhibition is open from May 22, 2019 to January 2020 in Tartu City Museum (Narva mnt 23).
The exhibition is supported by Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
