Expositions

Visit ‘Eternally the same’

Our current exhibition ‘Eternally the same’ zooms in on the ritual of repetition in the religious life and in the psychiatric institution. The exhibition was organised in collaboration with the Psychiatric Centre Caritas. We put the life of the patients next to the life of the Sisters. We do not judge, but look.
