D'après le site Internet de l'Exposition: Wolfgang Leupold (1895-1986) was appointed as a geologist by the Dutch East Indies Administration and spent six years in the Northeast of Borneo with his family, from 1921 to 1927. This stay is documented through artefacts, pictures and records. Leupold's two sons Urs and Rudolf donated these personal keepsakes to the Ethnographic Museum of Zurich University in 2008 in order to preserve knowledge that had been handed down within the family and, at the same time, make it available for research purposes. Leupold's collection, now presented to the public for the first time, goes far beyond a mere biographical dimension. It offers broader historical insights and valuable objects preserving the skills and knowledge that went into their making

"The focus of Through Your Eyes: Religious Alterity and the Early Modern Western Imaginations is the (mostly Western) understanding, representation and self-critical appropriation of the "religious other" between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. Mutually constitutive processes of selfing/othering are observed through the lenses of creedal Jews, a bhakti Brahmin, a widely translated Morisco historian, a collector of Western and Eastern singularia, Christian missionaries in Asia, critical converts, toleration theorists, and freethinkers: in other words, people dwelling in an 'in-between' space which undermines any binary conception of the Self and the Other. The genesis of the volume was in exchanges between eight international scholars and the two editors, intellectual historian Giovanni Tarantino and anthropologist Paola von Wyss-Giacosa, who share an interest in comparatism, debates over toleration, and history of emotions"--
