THE NEXT ART-OF-PEACE BIENNALE presents What is Peace? (Answer Here) curated by Roddy Hunter.
The risks and uncertainties of interconnected and integrated global systems now outweigh their once held utopian dream to enable a common humanity. In this context, artist-researcher Roddy Hunter has appointed himself as curator of the second edition of The Art-of-Peace Biennale, formulated as a concept by artist Robert Filliou ﬁrst realised as 'Zugehend auf eine Biennale des Friedens' curated by René Block in 1985. 'What is Peace? (Answer Here)' is the culmination of THE NEXT ART-OF-PEACE BIENNALE 2015-7 and explores how we might exploit or resist technologies of accelerated globalisation. It does this through addressing, in particular, Robert Filliou’s question ‘We're all against war. But what are we for? Peace, we say. What is peace? Nobody quite knows' (Filliou, 1985).
Centrespace is in the Visual Research Centre, DJCAD and is located on the lower floors of Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, Dundee.
