URBANda - O Santo Goethe


The site specific intervention "O Santo Goethe" intends to provoke a reflection on the role and presence of religion in public every day life. Coming from Weimar, a German city where religion is almost invisible - despite churches perceived as relics from ancient times - a significant difference can be experienced in Salvador. The proposed urban intervention is based on the experience of an overwhelming presence of religiousity of various beliefs in the city of Salvador and on the idea of syncretism of Candomblé. A procession is carried out with elements from Catholicism in honor of the "saint" of Weimar, the poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who is crutial for Weimar's present search for identity. The path of the procession leads from a shopping mall over high way bridges towards a universal church. Reactions are to be provoked.
