The show

Fondazione Imago Mundi presents from Wednesday 5 April to Sunday 17 September 2023 at the Gallerie delle Prigioni exhibition venue in Treviso the exhibition The war is over! Peace has not yet begun .

The exhibition presents works by 14 artists: Francesco Arena, Terry Atkinson, Massimo Bartolini, Eteri Chkadua, Maxim Dondyuk, Harun Farocki, Leon Golub, Alfredo Jaar, Mario Merz, Richard Mosse, Pedro Reyes, Martha Rosler, Sim Chi Yin, Ran Slavin . The war is over! Peace has not yet begun, through the selection of artists' works, invites us to observe the apparently concluded conflicts of our time and past history and to reflect on the profound difference that exists between the simple closure or stalemate of the armed phase of a conflict and the 'establishment of a real condition of peace.

When a war ends – generally away from the attention of the media – it begins a long time that does not always find fulfillment in a real and lasting peace. In recent times we have seen this happen, for example, in Iraq and Congo, where today tensions are rekindling after decades. Has the violence in Afghanistan stopped since the US decided to "end the war"?

So wars end, but when does peace begin? Fondazione Imago Mundi offers visitors to the Treviso exhibition to seek possible answers through an experiential exhibition itinerary that creates a short circuit between three different ways of interpreting this very difficult theme: a journey through the history of art intertwines with works that express themselves in the most contemporary and with photographs of an explicit documentary nature.

In all the works selected by the Imago Mundi Foundation, the drama of a situation of peace that has begun, but has not really been completed, fully resonates.
