On Sunday, August 11, 2019 at 2 pm, guided tour of the exhibition Le jour des esprits est notre nuit, followed by a tour of the exhibition Sorcières! Rites, croyances et persécutions en Alsace at Musée sundgauvien accompanied by Raymond Heidinger, collector of esoteric objects.
CRAC Alsace and Musée sundgauvien co-organise a guided tour, from contemporary art to local history. Touching on similar issues, both exhibitions explore local history through the representation of the witch in the collective imagination. The exhibition presented at Musée sundgauvien features a set of objects used in the region to protect houses and crops.
"Social structures, widespread ignorance, and to an even greater extent, the exploitation that has been made of these, largely contributed to making women the ideal victims of one of the darkest episodes of our region's history."
