On the occasion of the end of the First World War 100 years ago, the exhibition “1914/1918 – Not Then, Not Now, Not Ever” entitled “1914/1918 – Not Then, Not Now, Not Ever” with works by internationally renowned artists from countries militarily involved in the First World War was shown in the German Bundestag. The joint art project enjoyed great popularity and could be viewed until January 6th, 2019 as part of weekend tours that were fully booked until the end of the year.

The initiator of the project is the Osnabrück Volker-Johannes Trieb, who with the support of the district and many regional sponsors in cooperation with Till Breckner (Art & Culture International gGmbh) and the curator Mattijs Visser has realized the peace art project. On January 6th, 2019, the exhibition ended after an eight-week period with enthusiastic impressions from visitors and the press.


“But the exhibition is not only a remembrance – it is above all a warning in view of the increasing tensions in Europe and the current wars in the world.

ARTE Journal 08.01.2019

„Kunst für eine bessere Welt: Im Reichstagsgebäude in Berlin findet zum Gedenken an das Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs bis zum 6. Januar ein bewegendes Friedenskunst-Projekt statt.“

“Some adaptations open up in the context of war and destruction, violence and death at first glance, others remain enigmatic and inaccessible. It is amazing how many creative ways there are to deal with a piece of wood against the background of the great murder at the beginning of the 20th century”.
