Zeichen der Zukunft
Wahrsagen in Ostasien und Europa / Signs of the Future. Divination in East Asia and Europe
What will the future bring? The exhibition "Signs of the Future. Divination in East Asia and Europe" is the first to showcase instruments, methods and practitioners of fortune-telling in a cross-cultural dialogue. In this bilingual catalogue, leading international experts explore 130 objects from the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the National Museum of Taiwan History and the Academia Sinica, including a Feng Shui compass, scientific instruments and even tarot cards.
Due to the COVID-19-Pandemic, the exhibition opening at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, scheduled for December 2020, takes place in 2021.
