VIDEO: Swiss Church Towers Turned Into Minarets

Some provocative “artwork” by European artist, Johannes Gees, (a non-Muslim?). I think he is seeking to portray the changing identities of Europe and how white Europe is negotiating and coming to terms with a large population of Muslims, where the adhan may one become normal.

Note the date of this video and how this idea is more relevant now than it was in 2007 to European Muslims, with the recent Swiss minaret ban, which Johannes discusses here.



  1. Wow!

    I don’t really know what else to say.

  2. الله أكبر

  3. Mashallah a brilliant project. As a muslim i would be over the moon if I was to hear the athaan every day but i’m pretty sure a lot of non-muslims wouldn’t like it. The lady in the video didn’t find it disturbing because that’s the first time she’d heard it, if she was to hear it every day, 5 times a day, one at around 5’oclock in the morning…then she most probably would end up getting annoyed…

  4. Simply courageous and intuitive!

    The filp side of this is that if a Muslim would have done this, he would have been jailed on charges of disruptive the peace and inciting sedition!Subhanallah.

    I loved it! Thanks for sharing it.
