Sacrifices in Precarious Times: From Moche Culture to the Current Climate Crisis
Curators Claudia Augustat and Elena Ritschard present the new experimental showcase in the Open Storage “Sacrifice in Precarious Times: From Moche Culture to the Current Climate Crisis”.
Around 1,500 years ago, the Moche culture along the arid northern coast of Peru performed human sacrifices to mitigate climatic and ecological disasters caused by severe El Niño events. The precarious living conditions in consequence of El Niño have shaped societal structures and affected communities from Moche times until now. What can we learn from this past and our present to envision a better future?
