The Urban Sacred aims to show the complexity of religious and cultural encounters in London, Berlin and Amsterdam.

Historically, the Netherlands has been a crossroads of German and British influences; the three cultures reflect mainstream Protestantism and have the same linguistic roots. Comparison is all the more interesting because of the divergent church-state relations to which their religious cultures testify: Anglicanism in the UK, partial separation of church and state in the German case, and pillarization in the Netherlands. With the help of photographs, texts, objects and maps the exhibition reflects the complex meaning of religion in Europe‘s capitals and encourage an understanding from multiple perspectives.
