VULGATA

A Contemporary Engagement with the Bible
Exhibitions
From
until
The texts of the bible have been one of the most important sources of inspiration for art even in modern times. Nowadays our worldview is shaped by the insights of the (natural) sciences. Yet artists continue to engage with biblical themes and cast new light on topics that initially seem to defy creative exploration. Based on the special exhibition "Vulgata. 77 Zugriffe auf die Bibel" (Vulgata. 77 Accesses to the Bible), shown in Graz in 2017, we have selected for you from the objects shown at the time those most suited to our rooms and exhibits. Paintings and installations, videos, sculptures and prints by international artists highlight apparently familiar and oft-narrated biblical themes from a new and original perspective.
