Every day, theaters of war around the world are at the center of media attention. Working for peace on the other hand is unspectacular, slow, and not very appealing. How can a place, an initiative, an artistic work become a theater of peace? What alternative perspectives can be used to counter asymmetrical conditions of visibility? Is it even possible to make peace visible, to represent it? The book brings together artistic and activist strategies that make visible the hidden stories behind the different scenes of crisis around the world, intervene into public discourse, and resist the logic of war. Featured artists include Lize Mogel & Dario Azzellini, Steven Rowell, Floating Lab Collective, Stefan Kaegi/Rimini Protokoll, Robby Herbst, Victor Gama, Akim, the Center for Political Beauty, David Reeb, Artists Without Walls, Oreet Ashery & Larissa Sansour, Mazen Kerbaj, and Solo7, among others.
