Signs For Peace A Critical Visual Encyclopedia

by Vera Baur Kockot

Signs For Peace A Critical Visual Encyclopedia Synopsis

Can one visualize peace? Are there signs, symbols, and images that present a positive image of peace as opposed to receiving their meanings in opposition to war? Over several years of research, the Design2context Institute has intensively examined the representation and representability of peace and has compiled a comprehensive collection of images. In order to include a number of historical, cultural, and political perspectives, the archival aspect is supplemented by workshops in crisis regions. The encyclopedia - which, as new sociopolitical situations continue to arise and call for new pictures, must inevitably remain incomplete - provides a broad overview of the iconography of peace, and is also intended to assist in gaining an understanding of the concept. This book represents a significant contribution to future discussions on the need and desire for peace in political and social life.
