When culture tells the war

On the Arte channel we talk about war in Ukraine but from the point of view of culture.

Intellectuals talk about war. The war from the point of view of writers, curators of exhibitions and museums, musicians who found themselves from one day to the next with their whole world upset. Works of art that have been hidden in the basements hoping to be able to admire them again, ancient books that have been packaged and placed in dusty archives without the guarantee that one day they will be reopened and the work, jazz and all music have been silenced and the only sound is the sirens signaling an imminent attack.

In such a scenario, the world of culture becomes the bearer of a message of peace and harmony among peoples hoping for a rapid resolution of the conflict. Culture is the only light in the darkness of these sad times.

Through art people speak to each other, understand each other and intellectuals know that it is up to them to help decipher the messages for a serious and honest dialogue, for a lasting peace that puts an end to the winds of war that are going through us at the moment.
