Medium Religion (Excerpts)au
Drawn from the exhibition Medium Religion, which was presented at the prestigious ZKM in Karlsuhe, Germany, in 2008-2009, this video program includes works by international artists who investigate the way religion is understood in contemporary societies.
The works, from a variety of cultures and horizons, may be read in light of a debate that opposes the historical forces of a “return to religion” and those of “disenchantment” and the secularization of the world.
This video program is being presented in conjunction with the Fourth International Max and Iris Stern Symposium, ART AND RELIGION, held at Place des Arts’ Cinquième salle from April 15 to 17.
Artists: Adel Abdessemed, Oreet Ashery, Christoph Büchel, Omer Fast, Boris Groys, Jenkins/LaHaye, Rabih Mroué, Nira Pereg, Wael Shawky and Jalal Toufic.
