The Violence Project
@ The 7 Memorials for Humanity

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!

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 Projecthttp://violence.newmediafest.org

Deadline: Ongoing

Established on occasion of the terror attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015, the memorial project is dedicated to all victims of islamist terror. Many attacks were taking place before that date, and most recently, Brussels had been the place where again dozens of innocent people became victims of islamists. Like previous attacks, the attacks in Brussels on 22 March 2016, in Nizza on 14 July 2016 and now Berlin on 19 December 2016 were addressed to the civilized world, as such, and its values.

The participatory project initiated and curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, media artist and curator from Cologne/Germany, is inviting artists all over the world and their friends to show emapthy and solidarity with the victims of these terror attacks and the survivors, by participating and contributing.

This memorial for the victims of terror, however, is not restricted only to this latest terror attack, but is dedicated to all victims by (islamist) terror, starting before the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington 2001. Noone will be forgotten!

Artists are invited to contribute textual comments and statements (plain email), images (jpg), sound pieces (mp3) and video (.mov, mp4, HD).
