  The Return of Religion and Other Myths

Opening 29.11.2008 om/at 16.00 uur/hrs

BAK, basis voor actuele kunst presents The Return of Religion and Other Myths. The opening takes place on Saturday 29 November 2008 at 16.00 hrs at the Nicolaďkerk, Nicolaaskerkhof 9, Utrecht.

The Return of Religion and Other Myths is a large-scale multifaceted project, consisting of the exhibition The Art of Iconoclasm, a discourse program taking place in early 2009 titled On Post-Secularism, and the publication of a BAK Critical Reader on the subject in 2009. The project explores the popular assumption of the return of religion to the public sphere, contemporary politics, and the media in the West as a constitutive "myth."
