Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more people are convinced that secret forces are at work behind social crises. The phenomenon of such conspiracy theories is much older, however, and some accusations persist for centuries to the present day. From a historical perspective, the exhibition examines the origins, functioning and spread of conspiracy thought, from the alleged poisoning of wells by Jews in the Middle Ages to “chemtrails” and the anti-vaccination movement, including the Freemasons and the Illuminati. Rich in objects and themes, the exhibition aims to contribute to an important societal question and help to better distinguish between reality and fiction, which has become particularly important in the Internet age.
