Muhammad – The Prophet

Taken from the series “Gods of Suburbia” (2014)

This is Dina Goldstein’s third large-scale project 2013-2014. The work is a visual analysis of religious faith within the context of the modern forces of technology, science and secularism. The series plays with narrative and religious iconography in order to communicate how organized belief has become twisted within a global framework driven by consumerism and greed.  The project challenges the viewer — religious or secular — to embark on a journey of self-reflection as they contemplate the relevance of dogma in modernity.

The artist about the work:
Muslims have a rich history as scholars and philosophers, and modernity owes much to the Islamic Golden age, which flourished from the 7th to the 13th century. Muslims made many discoveries in mathematics, chemistry, physics, medicine, astronomy, and psychology.  All of these hundreds of years before science arrived in Europe.
This piece explores the obvious disconnect between the East, specifically Islamic principles, and the West’s secular ideals, which is currently at the forefront of international concern.
Fundamentalism is on the rise, combining dark age torture with high tech social media to recruit.  Each side has deeply seeded beliefs that are based on directly opposing ideologies.  Can the concepts of many different religions co-exist within an ever-expanding global population?
