Few issues have been as controversial in recent years as those relating to the status of Islam in public life. But who are the people to whom the prevailing clichés relate and what are their conceptions of life? What form do Moslem lifestyles take in Istanbul and Marrakesh? How is Moslem identity expressed in Dakar and Paramaribo? And what are the situations confronting Moslem men and women in Zurich, Geneva and Basel? The exhibition explores how Islam is lived out by today's young people in various continents, enabling visitors to see how young adults go about their everyday lives in urban surroundings in Morocco, Senegal, Suriname, Turkey and Switzerland. Colourfully staged, with collage panels, music clips, films and videos, the exhibition portrays the role of Islam in private and public life. Based on a concept of the Tropenmuseum of Amsterdam KIT, and in collaboration with the Tropenmuseum, the exhibition takes a present-day look at Islam. It gives a face and a voice to an abstract concept and provides a neutral introduction to this topic.
