between faith and money

How much is a blessing?

Churches in Germany are losing more and more members. However, this is not noticeable in the income of the churches – it‘s quite the reverse. Income rises continuously so much that the decreasing number of the church members is compensated.

The kinetic datavisualization »In between believe and money« shows the development of the income of the church in comparison to the decrease of members in between 1955 – 2010. The development seems to continue continuously and incessantly. But for how long will this trend last for? The installation invites to a discourse.
