The Violence Project

by The 7 Memorials for Humamity

The Violence Project
In 2002, the media artist and curator Wilfried Agricola de Cologne initiated Violence Online Festival (running until 2006) – a networked artistic project starting at the eve of the Iraq war.

20 years later in 2022, it is the right time to re-activate this Violence Project – it is war time again in Europe! After more than 70 years of peace, it had been unthinkable, that war could return to Europe. War was elsewhere!

This current war at the Eastern European border is the attempt of some Zombies (the living dead) to keep the illusion vivid violence and the war against the own and other people might maintain the control while human made violence in shape of the Climate Change and the destruction of the living conditions for humans on Earth is out of control. Whether the ancient Soviet and tsarist glory, the misuse of women and children or nature – violence as a human condition has always the same roots .
Art has not the power to prevent violence, but it is able to sensitize people for these fundamental issues by pointing to these roots and their manifestation in a diversity of violence.

The Violence Project
is corporate part of the 7 Memorials for Humanity to be presented im different exhibition formats online/offline.

Artists from all over the world working in audio-visual media (video, soundart etc) are invited to participate and submit up to 3 works.
