Stances on Ritual Circumcision

The special exhibition "Snip it! Stances on Ritual Circumcision" approaches this complex subject from its various perspectives – religious, historicocultural, legal, and medical aspects of circumcision are examined in relation to current discussions. The catalog of the same name offers readers more in-depth insight into the traditional concept of kinship through a bodily sign. Anti-Semitic and Islamophobic attitudes with their roots deep in the past also play a role.
