'We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn't burn’, they proclaimed back in 1968 already. Fifty years later, how can we explain the current resurgence of the figure of the witch?
Witches were hunted down, tortured and, for tens of thousands of them, burned. They were accused of entering a pact
with the devil, of participating in orgies and of devouring children. These witches fascinate us as much as they haunted our childhood dreams.
This exhibition wants to establish a dialogue between the witches of yesterday and today. Through art, archives, cinema, dance, song, comics, performance and a touch of magic, the exhibition Witches questions the figure of the witch, explores both the way in which she has filled our collective imagination and her representation across the centuries, and examines her relevance today.
