Peace Treaty Exhibition: Clocks from Hiroshima
Seventy-one years on, a way to peace posed by the heritage of Hiroshima
From the Organizer:
The Peace Treaty project has always been the cornerstone of the dss2016 cultural programme, being its main project which, would provide the necessary scope for us to talk about the main thematic pillars of our candidature: peace and coexistence among different peoples and cultures in San Sebastian and Europe. This year, a project, containing a wide variety of activities related to the Peace Treaty, started in 2013 and the process that has been built until 2016 will be represented together.
This exhibition is driven by a collaborative work methodology, under the artistic direction of Pedro G. Romero, and is presented in different formats, different institutional spaces, and hinges upon the collaboration with a large team of local and international agents. In order to reconsider peace, four clocks are to be taken from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum as symbolic examples.
At the end of its entire process, the legacy generated and left by Peace Treaty shall be immense, in terms of experiences, heritage, and documentary deposits and publications.
