War and peace are conceptual opposites, but in practice, the difference between them is not always so clear. In a group exhibition, a film series and lectures, the transitional phase between war and peace will be illustrated using historical examples (from World War II to the recent war in Iraq). The official end of war does not mean that all military actions have automatically come to an end, nor does it represent a complete break of developments which led up to the war. The influence of war and military technology on peace is a crucial issue for Wolfsburg's own history, as it was the site of the Nazi armament industry.
