Might as Well is about the role of power within society and between people. Power is everywhere: sometimes necessary, sometimes needless. From the traffic cop and the manager to the doorman, but also from the criminal and the dictator to the rapist, all make use of a certain kind of power over others. Some use commonly accepted laws and rules, others use the right of the strongest, or the force of the gun. Might as Well gives us seven perspectives from seven artists on the role of power and the possible concerns that come with it.

The Hague Peace Project, Thursday March 24, 8 PM

The Aesthetics of War


On the 24th of March, The Hague Peace Projects together with Nest organizes a public discussion themed: “The Fine Art of Peacemaking" (“Vrede is geen Kunst?”). 

Representatives from two worlds are invited: on the one hand the world of professional art and on the other the world of peace activism. Both activists and many artists are concerned about the world and the society we live in. But not very often do they meet each other to exchange and discuss their views. This meeting will therefore provide an opportunity for the audience to delve into the differences and connections between both worlds.

In English
Entrance € 2,-
including 1 drink
