International Art & Peace Project (2018 - 2020)
This international art and peace project commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons signed by the nuclear-weapon states USA, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain in 1968.
The artistic concept behind 50 Cities - 50 Traces is to juxtapose individual traces from 50 Mayors for Peace cities, highlighting the diversity and beauty of these cities and the daily life taking place therein. The exhibition is conceived as an invitation to respect and preserve the world’s visible remainders, which are bearers of memory. It is an appeal against the destruction of our cities, against the deployment of nuclear weapons – thus supporting the core idea behind the Mayors for Peace movement: “Cities are not targets.”
