A r t p e a c e l i n k
Artists for Nonviolent Alternatives

(516)286-0812
Advisor: Dore Ashton

"Returning violence for violence only multiplies violence, adding
deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars."    --Martin Luther
King, Jr.

"Imagine that you are creating the building of human destiny with the
object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at
last, but that it was essential and inevitable to torture to death only
one tiny creature and to found that edifice on its unavenged tears,
would you consent to be the architect on those conditions?"    --Fyodor
Dostoevsky, Brothers Karamazov


Introduction: We affirm that murder and forcible expulsion of people
are crimes against humanity. Bombing, though, is not an effective nor
civilized way to solve conflicts and is no less criminal. It is bitter
to realize that at the end of the 20th century, after two world
wars--the most cruel and severe  in the history of mankind--our
civilization still resorts to conflict resolution not through dialogue,
but armed force. It seems that no lesson was learned from this
century's horrific experiences and we are destined to fall once again
into a vicious cycle of death and destruction.

All of Europe is affected by the war in the Balkans. In addition to the
obliteration of Serb police and army sites in Kosovo, NATO has
demolished much of the civilian infrastructure of Yugoslavia. Hundreds
of civilians were killed, thousands wounded, and hundreds of thousands
left jobless. Bombed were television stations, oil refineries, chemical
plants, electric transmission facilities, major roadways, airports,
hospitals, schools, medieval monasteries, as well as numerous museums and
monuments. Cluster bombs, 25 percent of which fail to detonate, litter the
terrain with land mines for years to come.  This war can lead to political,
social, and ecological destruction of Europe and the rest of the world.


Proposal (Consisting of Two Parts):

1. Group Exhibition: Open to all media--painting, sculpture,
photography, video, installation, and computer generated art concerning
the definitions of human, humane, humanitarian/ism, humanity, humanize.

2. Collaborative Piece Artpeace:  each artist/writer/photographer who
is willing to participate shall contribute an art piece the size of
his/her hand. The amount of artwork received will determine the
installation in the space. The unified art piece will be linked
together in the form of a tree and continue to grow exponentially as
artists from around the world send in their contributions via mail or
the internet.

Purpose:  The proceeds from the sales will be donated to an independent
humanitarian organization (to be determined) that does not take a
military position and that provides medical and other crucial aid to
those who are suffering as a result of this war: both Albanian and
Serbian victims. This exhibition, however, is intended to raise much
more than money.  By bringing together artists from different countries
we would be creating a dialogue and, therefore, taking significant
steps towards the peace process.


Participants: Visual artists/Writers who would like to participate in
the name of peace.

Current list of participants (subject to change and expansion):
Lynne Allen, Dore Ashton, Katya Blumenberg, Jennifer Croson, Emily
Feinstein, Ellie Ga, Auguste Garufi, Mikhail Gervits, Jeanine Hart, Robert
Kalka, Olga Kisseleva, Komar & Melamid, Jerry Lerner, John Lin, Beth
Livensperger, Ivan Lunguine, Tomas Mike, Omar Olivera, Howardena Pindell,
Alexandra Paperno, Susana Ruiz, Rebecca Sack, Drew Shiflett, Tatiana
Stolpovic, John Varoli...

Projected exhibition date: October 1999.
