Nowruz, which translates as “the new day”, is celebrated as a New Year and spring festival in various countries along the Silk Road, such as the Balkans, the Black Sea region, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Middle East. These countries welcome the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere of the earth at the moment of the equinox.

“Nauryz, Navruz, Nawrouz, Nevruz, Nooruz, Novruz, Nowrouz, Nowruz”. The festival is rich in names as well as traditions and no matter what you call it, it has been bringing together over 300 million people in different countries and regions for more than 3,000 years. It is not a religious festival and is celebrated by Muslims, Christians, Baha’i, Jews and Zoroastrians. The origins of this festival are estimated by UNESCO to date back at least six centuries before our era. Reliefs in the stairways of Persepolis in Iran during the Achaemenid period bear witness to this. The New Year is associated with various rites and customs. Besides pagan roots, the customs have mainly a Zoroastrian origin. Nowruz is a time of reconciliation, a new beginning. Old enmities, grievances, worries, but also fears are left to the past. Not for nothing did it become a tradition to jump over the burning fire on Nowruz to leave the fears and negative feelings of the old year behind.


Exhibition dates: Tuesday, 14 March – Saturday, 22 April 2023
