Religious Magic and Sorcerer’s Powers: Beliefs and Representations of the Invisible in the Upper Rhi

  • Religious Magic and Sorcerer’s Powers: Beliefs and Representations of the Invisible in the Upper Rhi

    Magic and sorcery are at the centre of many civilisations, yet much mystery still surrounds them. The manipulation of powers, forces and spirits, by men and women with occult powers to communicate with the forces that govern the world, is generally an attempt to respond to a threat, a trauma or simply to everyday questions. Magic and its practices reflect the deepest emotions and desires of an individual, but also the spiritual, geographical and cultural context of a whole society at a given time.

    Magicians, sorcerers, healers, bonesetters, diviners, spell breakers, exorcists, and others: who are they, and what roles do they play? What are their tools and trappings?

    “Religious Magic and Sorcerer’s Powers” is a show that explores magic and magicians, from the Upper Rhine to the Africa of Voodoo, examining a multitude of practices and beliefs, across time and across continents.
