The bilingual exhibition “Called by your name: Nicholas” is meant as an inspiration to explore the history of names and churches, people and places – starting at the example of Nicholas and leading up to one’s own name: Nele or Lisa, Linus or Finn. The show presents Nicholas of Myra, the bringer of gifts on 6 December, in “his” iconographic colour red and accompanied by illustrations of scenes from his life on Fra Angelico’s “Perugia Altar” and the “Nicholas Altar” of the Thuringian town of Mühlhausen. By thinking about the content of the exhibition, visitors are lead to perceive locations, names and history as parts of their own identity, embedded in the transregional European context. The exhibition aims at school groups and adults alike. Initiated by the EKD’s Kulturbüro (Cultural Office at the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany) and supported by the Federal Government’s Commissioner of Culture and Media (BKM), the show is presented in cooperation with the Guardini Foundation as part of the first European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 “Sharing Heritage”.
