Active Debate: The Dictionary of War

October 31, Saturday

The second session will use the the work of artist Alfredo Jaar in the Moscow Biennale exhibition Against Exclusion - which explores the story of Kevin Carters' life and suicide, caused by his widely discussed war photography – as a reference to engage the debate on the different memories, concepts and perspectives in the Dictionary of War.

Launched in 2006 with the support of publisher Merve to remember the Second World War, Second Chechen War and the Beslan Attack, Dictionary of War, was initially inspired by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattary’s theory of Conceptual Personages, where groups from different cultural backgrounds are encouraged to explain their own perception of ‘War’, these different viewpoints allow empathy and deeper understanding of the subject. The debates have already been held in Germany, Serbia, Italy, Korea and Taiwan engaging philosophers and photographers, historians and lawyers, negotiators, psychiatrists, financiers, war writers and politicians, diplomats and poets.
