At „Europa Point“, the outermost southwestern tip of the continent, at the foot of the Rock of Gibraltar and the point at which Africa and Europe are their nearest, the camera‘s view of Africa is obstructed by a construction fence. Save for the lighthouse and a café, behind the camera is the only building at this place of enormous symbolic significance: the Ibrahim-al Ibrahim Mosque, donated in 1995 by the Saudi king. A reminder of Spain‘s Moorish times or spiritual consolation for Moroccan migrant workers: A stately mosque several kilometres outside of the residential area of a predominantly Christian small town, it is easily visible for all passenger and commerce ships arriving from the European mainland and a provocation to anyone who hasn‘t yet grasped that Europe‘s cultural boundaries are flexible.
