Whether wars produce weapons, or weapons produce wars, is one of the growth questions of national arms industries. And art too does not remain passive on this subject. In their works and through their activism, artists take a stand. However, the art world also profits from war and contributes its fair share to the accumulation of capital of corporations that produce weapons and deliver them to war zones. The exhibition Krieg kuratieren (Curating war), conceived by curator Ezgi Erol, brings international artists together whose works move along the interface between art and war. The exhibition deals with various aspects of war, the resulting conflicts, and the opportunities for action in the field of art. Some artistic positions question the economic base of the art world. Others try to find out how art shapes memory and creates a space for coping with war experiences.
