SANTORINI BIENNALE 2014 THEME IS PEACE MECHANISMS
Political systems have always viewed Peace as a state of balance and harmony between individuals and populations in which respect means acceptance of differences, in which conflicts are resolved through dialogue, in which people’s rights are respected and their voices are heard and everyone is at their highest point of serenity, bearing always in mind that systems usually consider warfare as an inevitable and integral aspect for the creation of human culture (which is also inevitable under certain socio-cultural or ecological circumstances!).
The Santorini Biennale, is calling artists to study and explore causations and reasons of violent actions (crisis – conflict – war development), and how the arts can create “a mechanism” against them.
