A new multimedia exhibit seeks to explore and encourage discussion on the issue of state-sanctioned bans of religious clothing and symbols.
“Body of Belief” features a collection of banned religious clothing and other distinctive symbols, and it includes museum-like holdings of artifacts and photographs of individuals wearing those artifacts.
The exhibit, organized by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, will be unveiled March 23 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland, from 6:30 p.m. to 8. It is part of the Becket Fund's work at the 61st Session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in Geneva.
Special guests at the exhibit will include individuals who have been fired, discriminated against, punished and ostracized for wearing religious symbols.
