GoSee Recommendation: Art for Peace. Lois Lammerhuber photographs the United Nations’ largest art collection at UNESCO in Paris. A gift from the Republic of Austria to the member states

Editor and photographer Lois Lammerhuber comments ‘with the greatest respect for the creative geniuses, who have created the artworks and to whom this project is dedicated, I attempted to use my visual language to enrich the masterpieces with a new interpretative layer. It has been a great honour to enter into an intellectual and photographic artistic dialogue with them. I would like to thank everyone by dedicating my work to them’.

The headquarters of UNESCO in Paris house the largest art collection of the United Nations. This UNESCO collection was neither planned nor curated by anyone. It came about through gifts from artists, representatives of the member states, visitors and personalities who wanted to support UNESCO’s aims in this way. The Republic of Austria dedicates ART FOR PEACE – a work by Lois Lammerhuber – to the UNESCO as a treasury of art.

The collection is global and, unencumbered by any thematic constraints, includes all kinds of styles and forms of
expression. This wide range reflects UNESCO’s philosophy of “Building a Culture of Peace” perfectly.

The Republic of Austria appreciates the UNESCO collection as an extraordinary art treasure. By means of a very special art project, Austria lets all member states share in the UNESCO collection. The photographs by Lois Lammerhuber unite the items of this art collection in a virtual exhibition.

The accompanying book will be presented to each member state as a work of art showcasing an art collection that they co-founded. In this way, the UNESCO collection becomes the national property of each member state. Art will act as communicator in the name of and for the UNESCO. The Republic of Austria dedicates ART FOR PEACE – a work by Lois Lammerhuber – to the UNESCO as a treasury of art.

GoSee presents an exclusive preview of the complete treasury – as a PORTFOLIO by Edition Lammerhuber. We recommend viewing the images in XXL and taking a virtual tour of the art and buildings.
