The Children of Abraham by Jens Galschiøt

The Children of Abraham - 2015

"The Children of Abraham" is an art and dialogue project created by Jens Galschiøt.

This project sheds light on the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The art project consists of 4 elements:

    • The Fundamentalism sculpture – A monumental art installation shaped as a sculpture that showcases the doctrines of the monotheistic religions through 3.5-meter-tall letters crafted from copper and steel.
    • 600 of the darkest and brightest quotes – Extracted from The Torah, The Bible, and The Quran are displayed on 28 monitors incorporated into the Fundamentalism sculpture. These quotes are used in various activities, including a quotation quiz.
    • The Pillars of Scriptures – Several copper sculptures exhibited independently to encourage citizens to engage in the dialogue.
    • The Dialogue project – The Secretariat for The Children of Abraham acts as a mediator for the project and leads the dialogue through various initiatives.

    "The Children of Abraham" premiered at "Silkeborg Bad" and has since been touring across Denmark, including an exhibition at the European Parliament.
