Inspring art: Christian Jankowski “casting Jesus”

The video installation ‘ Casting Jesus ‘ by the German artist Jankowski asks how Jesus should look like, according to us. There are no descriptions of the appearance of Jesus who can give comfort. Jankowski calls a casting agency for thirteen actors for a Jesus figure. The actors were judged by a panel of specialists, including a Vatican priest and an art critic of the Osservatore Romano. The artists filmed the audition.
