the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers

Exhibition at the Camera Austria in Graz

the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers is the main exhibition project emerging from the framework of the global prayers project. It looks at the media-based and cultural modes of expression of global prayers (through photographic series, video installations and soundscapes) and at the mobilization of the religious and its effect on urban life in the 21st century. The main questions of this investigation concern the relationship between new urban religious movements and state structures, the adoption of public tasks by non-state actors, autonomous organizational structures, the localization of transnational actors, and the production of urban space by religious communities.

After having been on view in the NGBK (Berlin) until January 8, the exhibition will be shown at the Camera Austria (Graz) from January 28 through April 1.
