The Angel of History

Just as The Angel of History, by Rabih Alameddine, mirrors themes and language from religious texts and subsequent religious literature, this project also pulls quotes and concepts from the novel itself as well as inspiration from Dante’s Inferno. As Jacob travels through the circles of hell, he encounters familiar faces, living and dead, and reckons with the effects of these relationships in his life and theirs. This project is meant to explore Jacob’s relationship to religion, both as he experiences it and as it is socially enforced, as well as the lasting impacts of the relational webs between people living, dead, and divine.
