This exhibition is a reflection on Professor Emeritus Krzysztof Wodiczko’s essay “Un-War” and a call to put an end to perpetuating the culture of war we live in.
The displayed works are a part of an open call in response to the following prompts:
What does Un-War mean to you?
What does it mean to build a culture of Un-War?
What does a world of Un-War look like?
How do we dismantle the culture of war?
How do we build an Un-War coalition?
How do we break out of a mindset of war?
What responsibility do we have in dismantling notions of war?
What does a collective Un-War consciousness look like?
What does an Un-War future look like?
How do we build an Un-War future?
What do we need to change for an Un-War future?
What does an Un-War framework look like?
