(Un)worldly. Images of seclusion and liberation (PARCUM)
(Un)worldly casts light on the significance of life in religious separation and seclusion. For centuries devout men and women have withdrawn into monasteries, hermitages, forests and deserts in search of silence and solitude. But such people are not rejecting the world, they are still very much of the world. In their quest to find God, they evolve from physical restriction to spiritual liberation and simultaneously travel a path from this world to the next.
Nowadays, people are also looking for peace and reflection, away from all the hustle and bustle, noise and distraction. PARCUM sets religious heritage right at the heart of modern society. It is about much more than just religion; it also addresses timeless universal themes, such as anxiety, guilt, relationships and meaning.
Seven themes transport the visitor into the world of monks, nuns, anchorites and hermits.
