Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a growing number of people are convinced that secret forces are behind social crises. However, the phenomenon of such conspiracy theories is much older, and some accusations have existed for centuries until today. In a historical perspective, the exhibition examines the origins, functioning and spread of conspiracy thinking – from the alleged well poisoning by Jews in the Middle Ages, through Freemasons and Illuminati, to ‘chemtrails’ and anti-vaccinationists. The show, which is rich in exhibits and topics, aims to make a contribution to a socially relevant topic as well as to provide support for the distinction between fact and fiction, which is particularly important in the Internet age.
