THE WITNESSES OF THE FUTURE: ISLAMIC PROJECT

At the beginning of a new millennium, some see the foreshadowing of a global society in which everyone will benefit equally from economic and technological progress. Others, on the contrary, foresee a confrontation between various world communities. This vision of the future predicts a disastrous collision between the three greatest religious cultures: Christianity, Islam and Confucianism. The AES Group - Tatiana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovitch and Evgeny Svyatsky - want to demonstrate the absurdity of this "theory of colliding civilisations." With the help of digitally manipulated images, they show us the face of cities such as New York, Paris and Sydney in 2006, under Islamic domination. These are ironic, fictional images about the political and social dimensions of urban space.
