Art and peace

Art and Peace

“Art obtains a more precise form or expression when its motivation is clear. If it is motivated by peace, the purpose of art will be the creation of new meanings, narratives, representations, devices, symbolic spaces and subjectivities related to peace”. (Alex Carrascosa, 2021)
