MoM - Strasse des Friedens (Road of Peace)  2013

organisation of an European Artproject:  https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europese

ROAD OF PEACE  (Strasse des Friedens)

For 40 years the staff of the project Road of Peace have been working on a 5,5000 km long ‘Street of Sculptures’ from Moscow to the Normandy coast.

In the course of time an international network of sculptors, art projects and peace initiatives has grown. The artists contribute to the European Peace with their work.

With MoM-Strasse des Friedens a connection to Amsterdam and IJsselstein is established.

Artist Otto Freundlich worked in the 30s to the idea of creating a sculpture route for peace.

Sculptor Leo Kornbrust began in the 70s in St. Wendel to the realization of this European Strasse des Friedens.

In 2004 the “Association Strasse des Friedens" has been founded.

The documentary about this art project entitled  "It Takes Time" by Gabi Bollinger (D), received two awards at the Film Festival in New York in 2011.
