Whose War, Whose Peace
February 10 – 19, 2023
A joint banner campaign by 19 Dresden cultural institutions and initiatives at nine central sites dedicated to the 78th anniversary commemorating the destruction of Dresden in World War II.
A war is not a natural event or a stroke of fate. It is the result of concrete decisions, with concrete effects on people. Humans as victims of war and civil societies threatenend by current situations of war and violence worldwide are in the focus of the banner campaign in February 2023.
The occasion for the joint banner campaign is the 78th anniversary of the destruction of Dresden in February 1945. Whose War, Whose Peace is a campaign of the alliance #WOD Weltoffenes Dresden, which is dedicated to the shared exchange on current perspectives of remembrance. As an alliance of Dresden cultural institutions #WOD Weltoffenes Dresden stands up for a cosmopolitan and solidary society, democratic values as well as the diversity and freedom of art and culture.
