Higher power. People, gods and natural elements


Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna presents a large-scale exhibition "Higher power. People, Gods and Natural Elements ".

The exposition consisted of exhibits from the funds of the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Vienna Museum and the Theater Museum, illustrating the belief in the existence of higher powers inherent in various civilizations and historical periods.

Many of these works document the different ways in which representations of the gods and elements affect both religious practice and art.

Natural forces, epidemics or political systems still make us feel like we are at the mercy of forces that we cannot control, but which, nevertheless, deeply affect our lives, change and shape its course.

Based on site materials Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
