In order to commemorate the end of the First World War, 31 artist coming from each of the 31 countries which signed the Armistice of Compiègne has each designed a block of oak wood as a monument to peace. The oaks wood has been taken from a former battlefield in the Alsace region and is punctured by shrapnel, still visible in the form of fragments of discolouration and metal caused by oxidation.
The will then move to the United Nations in New York. Curated by Mattĳs Visser and organized by Till Breckner (Art & Culture International), after an idea by Volker-Johannes Trieb.
