Religious movements transform urban spaces not just through numerous new buildings but also by converting old buildings, such as cinemas or factories, into places of worship. Yet above all, the city changes through the conversion of people who join new religious communities. Two parallel panels and a video installation examine these changes in Berlin, London and Rio de Janeiro.
4.30 – 5 p.m. Raumtausch – video installation about new forms of religious practices in Berlin
5 – 6.30 p.m. Conversion: Focus on London
5 – 6.30 p.m. Conversion: Focus on Rio de Janeiro
