peace of art

describes itself as a group of committed people from the fields of art, religion and politics whose intention it two-fold: to promote a dialogue between those who create culture through intercultural exchange and to seek understanding of political and religious questions. We aim to archieve a high quality of engagement with art in a non-judgemental and unbiased encounter, in contrast to the way art is frequently being misused in the worlds of religion and politics. With peace of art we are trying to pave the way for a space that offers a positive and humane approach through the medium of working and creating ‘pieces of art’. The goal is to initiate and encourage interpersonal dialogues which facilitate insights into the cultural, religious and political interconnectedness of the participants‘ contemporary lives, beyond prejudices and representations of the media.

Symposium piece of art - peace of art with artists from Egypt, Israel, Palestine and Germany, April 24 – May 5, 2006, Kunsthaus am Schüberg in Ammersbek near Hamburg, Germany.

The starting point of this project was a two-week symposium taking place in Ammersbek near Hamburg. Fourteen artists from Egypt, Israel, Palestine and Germany were meeting in a symposium April 24 to May 5, 2006.
The artists took part in a ‚work retreat‘ for two weeks in the KunstHaus am Schüberg to put to the test an approach in human and artistic encounter.
