More than two hundred archaeological treasures, miniatures, fabrics and sculptures from prestigious Turkish museums are on view for the very first time here in Brussels. They give an intriguing overview of the civilisations which came together hundreds of years ago, succeeded one another and merged in Anatolia. In this exhibition you find out what unites Hittites and Ottomans, Christians and Muslims, or the Phrygian goddess Cybele and the Olympian gods. In Anatolia you discover the age-old relationship between rituals and cults relating to the cosmos, nature, the gods and their relationship with people, from prehistoric times right up until the twentieth century.

Curators: Chevalier Marc Waelkens & Zülküf Yılmaz.
