Unfortunately almost an entire generation lost their lifes during during the first world war. And now, 100 years ago, it doesn´t seem, anyone learned from this loss, as the last 100 years are said to be the bloodiest century of all time. And still, political and military violence, suppression and the limitation of freedom belongs to the daily life of so many. Within ‘Zeitzeugen’, I am inviting contemporary artists who are dealing with this issue on a strong level, and some of them are victims of riot and armed defense.
