The Embassy of the Free Mind  (EFM) is proud to present its first exhibition in its new premises The House with the Heads: Kabbalah & Al­chemy, which is on show from 13 June -16 November 2019. The EFM is a library, a museum and a platform for free think­ing. Kabbalah and alchemy were traditionally regarded as hidden currents in European cultural history. The EFM wishes to explore with this exhibition the relatively unknown relationship between these two disciplines by means of richly illustrated manuscripts and printed books from the 16th-18th centuries, deriving from its Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica Collection and seven special Hebrew loans from the Amsterdam Ets Haim – Livraria Montezinos, the oldest still functioning Jewish library in the world.
