International fellows from the arts and sciences have been conducting research and other work within global prayers • redemption and liberation in the city. Employing methods and perspectives tailored to their respective research topic, they investigate the meaning and significance of new religious movements in urban contexts. To facilitate exchange and cooperation between artists and academics, semi-annual workshops have been taking place in Berlin as well as in other cities the project investigates. In addition, the Fellows have established a number of smaller interdisciplinary workshops with a local focus whose participants jointly work on specific topics.
