Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt announces contest for a new peace logo
The new peace logo will be chosen by an independent jury.

FRANKFURT.- The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt requests submissions for a new peace logo. The occasion: the discursive thematic exhibition PEACE that will be presented at the Schirn from July 1 to September 24, 2017. The new peace logo will be chosen by an independent jury, will be remunerated with prize money, and will be integrated into the exhibition communications. The deadline for receipt of entries is May 8, 2017.

Dr. Philipp Demandt, Director of the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, describes the project as follows: “This summer with our PEACE exhibition the Schirn sets out to explore how peace actually works, a question that is as compelling as ever today. Quite apart from this, we feel it is high time for a new peace logo, a logo for today that reflects our current notion of peace.”

The depictions of peace are usually limited to familiar symbols: doves, rainbow colors, rifles adorned with flowers. In the discursive group exhibition curated by Matthias Ulrich, the Schirn pursues a different approach and addresses the question of how peace actually works. Proceeding from the premise that peace is reflected most clearly in processes of interaction and communication among people and among all of the players in the ecosystem, the exhibition focuses on phenomena that have always contributed to making human (co-)existence possible and sustainable, such as water, animals, language, or the culture of giving.

The Schirn exhibition is offering a contemporary perspective on the subject with works by international artists such as Pia Camil, Jan de Cock, Minerva Cuevas, Ed Fornieles, Michel Houellebecq, Surasi Kusolwong, Isabel Lewis, Lee Mingwei, Katja Novitskova, Heather Phillipson, Agnieszka Polska, Timur Si-Qin, and Ulay. The current reassessment of the humanist view of the world and influence on the relationships between humankind and nature will play an important role in the presentation. The PEACE exhibition will be accompanied by numerous live events, including poetry readings, concerts, lectures, and cooking sessions in which visitors are invited to take part. The program will be developed in collaboration with the participating artists.
