An Online Art Action - Protest against violence
A peaceful-pacifist project by XXTanzTheater
Violence against women / violence against children / psychological violence / racist violence / sexual violence / gender violence / armed violence / domestic violence / police violence / digital violence / physical violence / Word violence / social violence / economic violence / violence in traffic
She surrounds us,
she's always there...
Do we ignore them?
We artists protest online against violence; We fight with our art for a more peaceful world, for a more respectful way of dealing with each other.
Artists from all fields and from many countries write an art diary against violence with their art. For four days, starting at 7:00 pm (Central European Time), a new post will appear in the diary every hour.
"Art Diary against Violence" is realized within the framework of our artist fellowship of the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Volker Hildebrandt, Multimedia Art (Germany)
For a number of years I have been devoting myself exclusively to one single art project.
It´s named LOVE PRO TOTO. It is a social network, or rather a social sculpture. It has a goal. Namely to create a world full of love. Yes, this is a dream. A wonderful dream. But it can come true if everyone helps a little.
It's a very simple idea. When everyone makes a little video in which they say I love you to all other people, then the dream has come true. It is very simple.

Maria Fili, Sculptor (Italy - Germany)
The processing of the stone with chisel, hammer, rasps and grinding tools takes place after a wordless dialogue, which begins with the choice of stone. The decision is usually made instinctively and gradually solidifies. Grasping the surface and the color of the stone are extremely important components, the sense of touch and sight create a direct connection to the otherwise closed subconscious (emotional distress). Eyes and hands carry out what has been transmitted and received as if by magnetism. Before the sculptures reach their final form, they and I, as the processor and viewer, constantly go through new situations that are directly related to our collective and personal experiences. Born in Italy, work in Germany.

Wehr51, Performative Kunst (Germany)
The main focus of WEHR51 is the implementation of its own concepts and theatre texts, which are dedicated to current and social-politically relevant topics. This is accompanied by the search for new dramaturgical approaches that lead to extraordinary locations and include immersive art forms. In the artistic debate, the content determines the form. The initial idea and theme determine the dramaturgical approach, in which the tools of acting, dance, music, video, etc. are combined and expanded in equal measure. The result is a diverse programme of 'hybrid' productions, which include drama-video-radio play, live-painting&dance, dance-theatre, theatrical music-sculpture, 'new music'-theatre and theatrical VR-installation and which cannot be categorised in the classical genre terms.
