Numerous have been, numerous are the artists who offer their vision of peace :
universal peace, inner peace, small and large utopias
These artists, often rebels, protesters of the established order,
of conventions trapping us in a narrow vision excluding others,
invite us to look at the world surrounding us with a renewed perspective.
With humor, anger, lyricism, poetry, they bear messages in which instead of war,
they often denounce the fear of differences as a main obstacle to peace.
Cette This series of self-portraits as been specially produced for the festival
"L'Art Déclare la Paix."
