Healing Power

From February 18, 2021 to June 6, 2022 the exibition Healing Power in the Tropenmuseum Amsterdam will show the many rituals, based on objects from Europe, South America to the Arctic regions. Six different ritual specialists take you into the stories behind the traditions. Because spiritual rituals serve as a source of inspiration for artists, Healing Power also features modern art. For example, spiritual objects from the museum collection such as shaman coats, amulets, wool thread paintings from the Huichol (one of the indigenous Mexican cultures) have been brought together with work by artists such as Damian Hirst, Marina Abramovic and Jorge Mañes Rubio. The eye-catcher is Luke Jerram’s full moon.
