Faith travels by Streetcar: Norms and Objects in Religious and Secular Contexts

Both religious and secular normative practices which structure and regulate public and private life often involve objects of daily use. Focusing on the rules, convictions, and conventions of the monotheistic religions – Judaism, Islam, and Christianity – as well as on secular beliefs, Faith Travels by Streetcar combines photos of such objects and texts written by scholars of various disciplines: sociology, philosophy, Arabic, Islamic and Jewish studies, as well as Protestant Theology.

Letter to the Father

Reminiscent of Islamic manuscripts from the past, Chaza Charafeddine copies in her own handwriting Franz Kafka’s famous letter to his father, a letter that never reached the author’s father. In a performative attempt to write to her own father, the artist traps the viewer in her dysfunctional communication with her father. Artist’s book, limited edition of 99 copies, numbered, and signed by the artist, accompanied by a booklet containing an introduction and an interview.
