Issued Date: 14 Jan 2013


The MAS (Museum aan de Stroom), the brand new city museum of Antwerp (Belgium), became the first museum in Belgium to openly include a presentation on the life and work of the contemporary shaman and artist Jóska Soós (1921-2008). It is incorporated within a permanent presentation on shamanistic practices throughout the world, and urban shamanism is itself recognized as a contemporary and western European form of shamanism in Europe. The article discusses the selection of art works, ritual objects and multimedia documentation in the presentation and the pioneer role of Jóska Soós. The author co-curated this presentation, based upon many years of scientific research into the life and work of the Hungarian-Belgian shaman and artist.
