This show marks two distinct but linked moments in peace history connected to the work of visualizing and concretizing the peace ideal that was(is) an important part of the “Peace through Law” Movement. August 27 marks the adoption of the International Flag of Peace by the Universal Peace Union (in 1897); it also marks the eve of the opening of the Peace Palace in The Hague (on August 28, 1913). In this show, we discuss the deeper roots of these moments that are part of the “visual history” of the Peace through Law Movement, and  how both the Peace Flag and the Peace Palace play important roles in “organizing the world” and the individual, for peace.  Further, as the “Peace through Law” movement naturally evokes the question of “justice,” we also discuss the complex relationship between peace and justice.
