LUTHER: IDOL& FETISH

Luther: Idol and Fetish - Graphics from the 19th century in dialogue with Thomas Behling (Berlin), Christian Holtmann (Bremen) and Sandra Munzel (Wietze)

The thesis of this exhibition is that Luther did not want to counteract the abuse of the images and their exaggeration to idol and fetish by their fall or even their destruction. Instead, he wanted to return to the viewer the freedom to dispose of the image with his view, his understanding and in his own decision. "The images are neither the one nor the other, they are neither good nor evil, one can have them or have not," wrote Luther. From this quotation it can be concluded that the consideration of art is no longer subject to the obligation, but is given a certain freedom. This freedom is now to be explored in the interpretation of the religious. Artists such as Sandra Munzel, Thomas Behling and Christian Holtmann are invited to discuss this (newly) gained freedom.


This exhibition is a cooperation with the cultural church of St Johannis.
