The EU exhibit is from July 10th to July 13th 2017 and is a part of the art and dialogue project The Children of Abraham, which uses visual art to build a bridge between Christianity, Islam and Judaism. It aims to create an understanding and a dialogue to counter the effects of extremism which a fundamentalist interpretation of the religions can create in any camp.
The sculptures show the darkest and brightest quotes from the Quran, the Bible, and the Torah and the exhibition is arranged by MEP (EPP) Bendt Bendtsen.
