Global Prayers: Contemporary Manifestations of the Religious in the City
Urban studies as well as artistic productions have long viewed religion and urbanity as mutually exclusive. Global Prayers, in contrast, puts the case for just such reciprocal influences. The publication is based on the work of an international network of researchers as well as artists, focusing on diverse urban assemblages and religious communities. The contributions record their movements and critically engange with them.
The research and cultural project Global Prayers examines questions of redemption and liberation in the cities of the world. New religious practices permeate public spaces and cultural scenes of these metropolises.
This book is no. 13 of the metroZones publication series and has been published in cooperation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Europa-Universität Viadrina, with the support of the Forum Transregionale Studien.
