‘SILENCE, WE PREACH!’ – MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme
Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – Aug 30 @ 5:00 pm
'SILENCE, WE PREACH!' - MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme

Famous film directors have used these Protestant priests as dramatic resources and fascinating characters, and the MIR screens an original montage of about twenty minutes made up of eight extracts from classic films.  Pastors are seen through the lens of directors such as Michael Haneke, Charlie Chaplin, Alain Resnais and John Huston.  Alongside, five gowns designed by Albertine will also be displayed in the Salon. They reflect the typology listed by French theologian André Gounelle, which underlines the specific ways ministers carry out their mission: as a Prophet, a Shepherd, a Leader, a Spiritual Director or a Priest.

Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Closed on Monday

MEGALITHS FROM HERE, MEGALITHS FROM ELSEWHERE @ Salle d’exposition de l’université de Genève

For more than 6,000 years and throughout the world, many human societies have been building monumental stone architecture. Were these dolmens and menhirs intended to ward off the fear of death, to honour the dead or to impress the living? This exhibition presents the work carried out by archaeologists in different geographical areas to understand megalithism in the world.

Weekdays only
