Next Stop Nirvana – Approaches to Buddhism

Date of event:   13/12/2018 − 31/03/2019

Museum Rietberg, Zurich
December 13, 2018 – March 31, 2019

Who was the Buddha? What did he teach? What rituals do Buddhists perform in everyday life? These are just some of the questions that a major exhibition at the Museum Rietberg addresses.

Artworks from China, Japan, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia tell of the beginnings of Buddhism in India and its spread across the world, including Switzerland. Select experts and practicing Buddhists introduce viewers to key concepts of Buddhism and explain terms such as nirvana, karma, and compassion. Discovery tours for different age groups, a short ABC of Buddhism, as well as playful interventions allow visitors to immerse themselves in the fascinating and intricate universe of this religion.

With the support of the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation and Engagement Migros.
