Pok ta Pok was the name of a ball game 3000 years ago, belonging to the Maya culture, and is seen today as the “mother“of the game of soccer. Jewellery laden players paid respect to the gods by moving a four kilo rubber ball with their hips and hands. The jewellery they wore, perhaps seen here in one of its earliest forms, guarded the men against demons, and cleansed the holy playing field.


Pok ta Pok hiess das Ballspiel der Maya Kultur vor 3000 Jahren, das als die Mutter des Fussballspiels angesehen wird. Schwerbeschmueckte Spieler ehrten die Goetter mit einem vier Kilogramm schweren Kautschukball, der mit den Hueften und Hand bewegt wurde. Der Schmuck, hier vielleicht in einer seiner urspruenglichsten Funktionen, bewahrte die Maenner vor Daemonen und reinigte das heilige Spielfeld.


The exhibition is curated by Olga Zobel Biro.
