What does A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew (MCJ) show?
“A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew... sounds like the beginning of a joke. But that is just to get your attention. The show is an installation consisting of paintings, drawings, and three metal cut-out sculptures. The three similar figures, their religious background unidentifiable, create situations by means of a vivid and comical body language. In every drawing they witness and experience major events in history or philosophy, or meet important figures like Moses, Buddha or Nelson Mandela. The three heroes, dressed as 19th century gentlemen, help each other in their journey to find the love of God. Here, there are no stereotypes, no one is the laughingstock, everyone is the same; we see three human beings who explore life, nature, culture and philosophy, out of shared curiosity, without trying to prove each other wrong.”
