“Peace – War” – Germanisches Nationalmuseum
The fragile construct of a peaceful Europe has collapsed with the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine. The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is taking the current situation as an opportunity to show objects for a whole year that stand in the context of peace and war. They serve as an impetus to reflect on the historical dimension of wars and the patterns of argumentation for and against combative confrontations that have existed for centuries.
