Rituals. The power of the Christmas wafer

Rituals” exhibition at Poland Pavilion at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, UAE, organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, presenting the Polish tradition of sharing the Christmas wafer.


December 17-31, 2021


This traditional ritual of the Polish Christmas table continues to be practiced today. The moment of “offering wishes” with the wafer is at once family-oriented, symbolic and intuitively understood across cultures. The exhibition features Christmas wafers as imagined by some of Poland’s top designers. Contemporary patterns and images appear on the wafers in an interpretation of universal terms and values, which are understood around the world — such as love, respect and peace.
