Tiny rooms in the most hidden corners of airports: the realization of a utopia for a peaceful co-existence between religion and the globalised world? Airports all over the world are being equipped with so called interreligious rooms since the 1980’s. They are open for all religions. It is a phenomenon, located within high security airports, between worldwide religious tensions, a radically mobilised world, the contrast between secularization and religious radicalism, fast-paced technological advances and the search for comfort. Andreas Duscha investigated this phenomenon through astonishing photographs, which compare the aesthetics of the different rooms. In addition to Duscha’s photographs, five authors engage themselves with the questions of this yet poorly researched field.
