The Shared Sacred Sites exhibition (“Lieux saints partagés” in French) started at the Mucem in Marseille, south of France. It was the result of 3 years of collective work. During 2 years, the curators and anthropologists travelled across the Mediterranean to collect religious materials, images and videos. In 4 months, more than 120,000 people visited the exhibition presented in a space of 1200 m2.
