A linguistic investigation to the relation of „knowledge“ and „faith“ in the world religions. From the books of 5 world religions Höller not only removes all knowledge, but faith as well. The words “Knowledge” and Faith” were dissected in each case out and were confronted as they are arranged in piles next to each other. The form that results from comparing the two words across different books of faith is itself significant in what it reveals. Nevertheless, Höller isn’t conducting research, but rather takes apart the contents without focusing on a particular assertion. The filtering of single words is something very current. Complex themes are broken down into individual words and are spread through the media. This is how content is lost. And it is also true here: there is not just black and white, but also a million shades of grey in between. Framed with museum glass Luxar 4mm UV-protected, anti-reflective coating on both sides.
