Give & Take

The Economy of the Divine

02 February 2013 – 19 January 2014

Buddhist monasteries, temples for one of the numerous Hindu deities or shrines for spirit beings represent just some of the spatial manifestations of religious practice, frequented regularly by worshippers. In addition believers often define their own spaces of belief, for example, by circling a sanctuary, depositing sacrificial offerings or even erecting a shrine at home. All these forms of worship evidence the significance of spatial bonding and movement. Give & Take. The Economy of the Divine sheds light on how this works in various Asian religions.
