The Emancipati Ensemble (2013) is an installation that features readers that address the needs of a more discursive religious pedagogy. These readers connect with each other and form “reading ensembles” among two to four children. The screens of the tablets make a shared reading surface and let children read, watch, and learn together. The dual-tablet interface presents information with alternative points of view by using custom content analysis software. Children get exposed to perspectives from multiple points of view that span across different religions, belief systems, orthodox, secular, scientific or agnostic opinions at the same time. Thus, children not only can introduce their own preferences and styles of learning by picking from a multitude of sources but also share with each other what they individually encounter during their studies.
