Wim Wenders and Mary Zournazi's Inventing Peace revolves around the question of how we look at the world, but do not see it when there is so much war, injustice, suffering and violence.
What are the ethical and moral consequences of looking, but not seeing, and most of all: what has become to the notion of PEACE in all this?
In the form of a written dialogue, Wim Wenders and Mary Zournazi consider this question as one of the fundamental questions of our times and consider the need to reinvent a visual and moral language for peace.
Inspired by various cinematic, philosophical, literary and artistic examples Wenders and Zournazi reflect on the need for a change of perception in everyday life as well as in the creation of images. In its unique style and method, Inventing Peace demonstrates an approach to peace through sacred, ethical and spiritual means, helping to make peace visible and tangible in new and unforeseen ways.
Accompanying the book are two films – Invisible Crimes and War in Peace – made by Wim Wenders and accessible through codes printed inside the book.
