A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew

Jewish Museum Berlin

In the series “A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew,” Eran Shakine explores the similarities and differences between the three world religions Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.

In sketchy oil pastel drawings, a Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew – an outwardly indistinguishable trio – explore the world. The exhibition title plays on the first line of a joke drawing on stereotypes.

Influenced by Street Art, Eran Shakine’s oeuvre includes drawings, paintings and sculptures, as well as art in public spaces. He was born in Israel in 1962 to a French father and Hungarian mother, both of whom went to Israel as Holocaust survivors. Having spent some years in Paris, London, and New York, Eran Shakine now lives and works in Tel Aviv.

His latest series “A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew” is being shown here in Germany for the first time. 42 Oil on Canvas, 20 drawings and sculptures.
