self-organised project by Gable Roelofsen.
The participants take part in the Peace Conference “Utopia or Distopia’, organized by the philosophy department of the “Technische Universiteit” in Berlin. While they develop their own artistic researches to open perspectives on the ‘question of peace’ and ‘what peace can mean in a contemporary society today’, the projects are archived and exhibited at the gallery Arttransponder.
The PEACE Project stands for the development of personal projects and of multiple collaborations between participants.
‘Mount Berlin’, the ‘Peace Walk’ through Berlin and the ‘Sleep Inn’ (a sleep-in initiative for the exchange of narrative) constitute the core of the researches.
