The Female Side of God
Visual representations of a suppressed tradition
- Published to accompany an exhibition at the Jewish Museum Frankfurt from 20 October 2020 to 14 Febuary 2021
The Jewish Museum Frankfurt presents The Female Side of God, based on numerous objects from cultural history and contemporary works of art. In a close reading of these works, the exhibition catalogue introduces this hardly known and oftentimes even 'suppressed tradition'. Comprehensible descriptions of these visual representations of a female deity, which can be found throughout the centuries, alternate with five essays, resulting from an interdisciplinary symposium of the research association 'Religious Positionings'. A highly topical publication, comprising faith, science, and art.
