Photography, Video, Documentary Film, Reading, Discussions
New religious communities and religious-political organizations use the urban space as a stage: with theatrical productions and parades, they demonstrate their presence, for example in Jakarta, Oberammergau and Mumbai. Paola Yacoub und Filip de Boeck report on emerging media-effective funeral rituals in Beirut and Kinshasa against the background of hushed-up mass graves or informal structures of cemetery management. And films and a discussion look at the Iranian revolution as an example of the links between religion and politics.
