‘Peace’: Group exhibition at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt

In the discursive group exhibition "PEACE" (June 30 - September 24, 2017), the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt pursues a different approach and addresses the question of how peace actually works.

Doves, rainbow colors, and rifles adorned with flowers—depictions of peace are usually limited to standard clichés and familiar symbols. Proceeding from the premise that peace is reflected most clearly in processes of interaction and communication among people and among all of the players in the ecosystem, the exhibition focuses on phenomena that have always contributed to making human (co-)existence possible and sustainable, such as water, animals, language, or the culture of giving.

The Schirn shows works by Pia Camil, Jan de Cock, Minerva Cuevas, Ed Fornieles, Surasi Kusolwong, Isabel Lewis, Lee Mingwei, Katja Novitskova, Agnieszka Polska, and Timur Si-Qin, which offer a new, contemporary perspective on the subject of peace. The current reassessment of the Humanist view of the world and influence on the relationships between humankind and nature will play an important role in the presentation. The exhibition is accompanied by numerous live events, including poetry readings, concerts, lectures, and cooking sessions in which visitors are invited to take part. The program is developed in collaboration with the participating artists.

”Peace” is being curated by Matthias Ulrich, from the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt.
