Beschreibung

The WALL FOR PEACE is a wall in the spirit of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. The work was conceived by artist Clara Halter and put in place by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. It is 16.40m long, 13.80m wide and 9m high. It is a metal stainless steel and glass structure. The word "PEACE" is engraved on it in 49 languages in 14 alphabets. It symbolises the continuance of time across the centuries; its letter boxes collect the wishes of their senders, as in the Jewish tradition. A video wall is linked to the Internet and a cyma emphasises the work of the artist Clara Halter. Reproductions of the designs of Clara Halter, composed of letters from different alphabets, act as a support to the messages of the visitors, who place them in the slots of the wall before taking a message, from here, that will become their property. This act by the visitor will be filmed on a huge screen, so testifying to their part in the traditon of people posting messages across the generations.
