Women Call for Peace: Global Vistas

On view from October 8, 2013 – December 10, 2013

The German artist and pacifist Kathe Kollwitz observed in 1944 that “Every war is answered by a new war, until everything, everything is smashed. That is why I am wholeheartedly for a radical end to this madness…Pacifism simply is not a matter of calm looking on; it is work, hard work.” The artists in “Women’s Call for Peace” embody this very idea of pacifist militancy. While women are rarely the perpetrators of war, they nonetheless suffer its devastating effects—the loss of their sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, husbands and homes. Therefore, women must assume responsibility for ending violent human conflict; they must raise their voices against violent aggression and insist on a world that is safe for themselves and their children. These are the goals of the distinguished participants in “Women Call for Peace”—Christian, Muslin, and Jewish, Black, White, and Asian—whose art works eloquently and vehemently advocate for global peace.
