Trickster – In mythology, and in the study of folklore and religion, a trickster is a character in a story (god, goddess, spirit, man, woman, or anthropomorphisation), which exhibits a great degree of intellect or secret knowledge, and uses it to play tricks or otherwise disobey normal rules and conventional behaviour.

 

In the summer exposition Tricksters, which will start from the 800 year old story of Reynard the Fox, the fox, the ‘trickster’ is a deceiver who knows how to manipulate the whole society.
