Next Stop Nirvana – Approaches to Buddhism

Dec 13 - Mar 31 2019       Gablerstrasse 15
Who was the Buddha? What did he teach? What rituals do Buddhists perform in everyday life? These are just some of the questions that this exhibition addresses. It showcases 2,500 years of Buddhist art and culture with artworks from China, Japan, the Himalayas and Southeast Asia. These works cover the beginnings of Buddhism in India and its spread across the world, including Switzerland. Select experts and practising Buddhists introduce viewers to key concepts of Buddhism and explain terms such as nirvana, karma and compassion. A short ABC of Buddhism as well as playful interventions allow visitors to immerse themselves in the fascinating and intricate universe of this religion.
