Peace message Koen Vanmechelen


Dear world,

 An artist must have the courage to uncover a conflict situation to enter into open communication with the world. We must be exceptionally vigilant today. The crisis associated with the global coronavirus outbreak is making most of us more social. However, as the environment slowly becomes more bearable again, and our feelings of fear are coalescing into something resembling hope, ’noise‘ and interference also seem to quickly return. We urgently need to find a healthy balance between nature and culture, between social and economic. Both are necessary in the dynamics of a good society. Only communicating vessels activate movement. Without others, we will never completely return home.


We are the other.


Peace message, Koen Vanmechelen, April 2020
