may we all have the sincere look to each other after the war. anything is possible, but never shure in time. I'm very sorry about this barely póór 'time windows' inside the 3rd millennium...

Michael Hoffschroer

Dear visitors,

I will say thank you to the initiators of this side but remember:

Not every war is against peace. Sometimes it is the way to peace.

I don’t know if the war against the irak is a way that should be gone. Therefore I think we all should protest against censorships and try to get more and correct information.

Than WE can decide if this war must be fought.


HAHAHA! Die Bilder "Haubitz&Zoche" verstehe ich irgendwie nicht (wie andere auch hier)!! Habe keinen Plan, was diese Rohbauten mit dem Motto images against war zu tun haben sollen. Ihr etwa??! Ich denke die beiden Typen sind Architekten und wollen ihre tollen Fähigkeiten (hier unter makaberen Umständen) präsentieren...

Wenn jemand doch es wissen sollte, würde ich mich über E-Mails freuen! Vielleicht auch die Herren Fotografen selber, denn die "wissen" bestimmt am besten, was diese Häuser ausdrücken sollen. Oh, vielleicht liegen sie ja im Irak... Das könnte natürlich sein! :))


wow !

Great Project, great images, great idea.

Bilder die das Leben schreibt - gezeichnet in die Gesichter ist die Ratlosigkeit. Nein, man wird Nichts im Leben vergessen. Aber man kann lernen Leid zu teilen. Ein Leben danach ist möglich wenn der Geist sich öffnet und nicht die Seele frisst. Danke für diese beeindruckenden Bilder. Ein Lob an alle mitwirkenden Künstler die Leben, Leid und Hoffnung zum Ausdruck bringen.

Dear friends,

in the next days you will find images from the opening, which was great, installation views and installation plans in the site here. Just takes some time to do it all.

the last image went on the wall 5 minutes before opening.

Please check our first internetnagazine article:

Still works can go in the website. Just send them by email.

Thanks again to you all.


Habe eure Site an George Bush persöhnlich geschickt.

Liebe Tina, Lieber Wolfgang,

vielen Dank für euer Engagement die Menschen um euch herum nachdenklich zustimmen. Es ist wichtig, heut zu Tage einen Beitrag zu seiner Meinung zu leisten, die nicht medial vorgefasst ist. Ich glaube die Kunst ist mal wieder so frei dies in einer "Art" zu zulassen die nicht immer in "Babylonischer" Sprachverwirrung endet.

Mit den besten Grüßen


P.S. Eure Site ist super gemacht.

eine wirklich tolle idee.

vielen dank fuer diese seite !


My English is not very good, but i will try to make a good post. This Page here is .......... I can´t say it in words, it´s to good. I´m only a pupil and have no idea from Art. But even I can say, that this pictures speak with the viewer and make him thoughtfully. There are so many questions in this terrible world full with terror and war. Where is no answer, that are questions like "Why can´t we life peacfully?" and "Who are the people behind the threads?" I hope my grammar isn´t so bad and that everybody understand what i wanted to say. In the end I would like praise Jürgen Raap, because I am from Cologne and the text is really good scribed in "Kölsch" you can drink and speak it. my last statement: " There is no end in view"


this is a good idea to show images against war. but most of the pictures are much too yellow to really break up peoples protected safe lifes. there are much more shocks needed to show reality much closer. anyway - good luck to you - and of cause - PEACE!

Living in the center of the United States, we are insolated from much of the rest of the world and the real thoughts and ideas of it's peoples. I salute your effort, the expense in time and money to produce this vast work of art and your bravery in standing up and making a statement for sanity. I trust that all who see this web site will pass it on to everyone they know. Thank You.

Everybody else went to sleep some time ago and i sit alone in the rubbish after an opening. Hope we can establish a forum about photography here.

Some corrections : The tittel of photos No guerra is better : " NO A LA GUERRA "

I don´t know if the phrases " live and work in Vitoria Spain " and " Spanish people don´t want war " are o.k. in English. Please, if not to correct. Thanks you. Pilar

Oliver möst

ich wünsche Euch eine schöne Eröffnung

I beg to differ with C.Cambon. If we follow his message, all acts of creation would fall into your "anti-war category." This is not the case. Many, many works of art have been created in violence and pain. Know your history.

Claudio Cambon

Someone earlier in the guestbook mentioned that some of the photos were a "stretch in terms of their anti-war message." I would counter that any photograph, or work of art for that matter, is an anti-war message. It is an act of creation, while war is one of destruction. In and of itself, any piece of art, deliberate or off the cuff, elaborate or humble, is a gesture of peace. If everyone were concerned with making, we would want to preserve what we have, and wouldn't be so obsessed with destroying each other and ourselves. To me every photograph on this site is very pertinent to what is happening now in the world, even if it doesn't seem so on the surface.

Wir finden's toll und unterstützen auch gerne auf unserem Web-Portal.


die website schaut ja ganz toll und vielversprechend aus! Eine kleine Korektur, schreibt bei uns bitte: Haubitz+Zoche
