Since Jacques Callot and Francisco Goya, but especially since the First World War, many artists are committed against war and for peace. But in recent times their initiatives go beyond the imaging of war atrocities and appeals for reversal. Which artistic strategies are likely to counteract a policy of violence?

In the context of the exhibition »global aCtIVISm«, the participants will discuss these and other questions.
