For decades, a fundamental pacifist consensus was the inviolable basis for security, stability and prosperity in Western societies. What has remained of it?
Starting from this question, five artists approach the fragile fiction of peace. The list of demands of the International Peace Movement serve as a reference space, as do the anti-militarist actions of feminist and anti-war movements of the 1970s to ‚90s; aspects of binary gender role attributions in conflict situations; what it means to be a „un-peaceful“ woman; the influence of visual language and propaganda; and the perpetual question of in what kind of world we actually want to live in. The different artistic approaches complement each other through juxtaposing archival materials and current perspectives. Hovering over everything is the question of individual agency. Once again it becomes clear that it is womxn who are the first to be silenced in conflicts; once again it shows that it is above all voices of womxn who call, time and again, for the need of resistance against authoritarian structures, war and violence.
