This exhibition presented more than 350 ritual objects used in Haitian vodou. They are part of the collection of Marianne Lehmann, which comprises about 3,000 items.
For the first time an exhibition gave a comprehensive insight into the world of vodou. The focus was on the Bizango, a vodou secret society whose objects were only to be seen by initiated members in Haiti, and thus hitherto concealed from any broader public. Furthermore, representations of spirits, sumptuous altars, sequinned flags, vessels and huge mirrors were on display.
