Der Funke Gottes!

Schatz + Wunderkammern im Bamberger Diözesanmuseum

In the exhibition Der Funke Gottes! (God’s Spark) the works of sixty contemporary and modern artists—such as Ernst Barlach, Julian Charrière, Leiko Ikemura, Meret Oppenheim, and Ai Weiwei—encounter first-class sacred sculptures by Tilman Riemenschneider and Veit Stoß, precious artistic craftwork and religious folk art. In accordance with the terms of “touch, celebration, time, and violence,” an open dialogue between the past and present arises. The catalogue continues this by asking contemporary art about its spiritual content, and religion about its contemporaneity.
