The main synagogue of Aleppo in Syria was heavily damaged in the civil war. This is the visualisation, detached from space and time, of the history of a place that no longer exists. It’s like stepping into an old black and white film where several strands of time converge. Encounters are suddenly possible: with characters who are still alive or who died decades, centuries ago.

In a mix of room-scale gaming and live action film Jerusalem can be experienced as a religious epicentre where three world religions overlap. Believers of all denominations work on the narrative of the place, pleading for mutual understanding. The starting point of this intellectual game is the ambivalent term of Abrahamism which initiates a trialogue between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann
