Thisartwork reminded me that, sadly, nothing changes. Wars never end, just take different weapons and word is the most dangerous. We don’t have to go too far to find the last Charlie Hebdo attack.
The same people who show us the reality, talk about it or are critics, the ones in most danger. This is our scary reality, full of misunderstanding, lack of respect between others and too much ambition.
At the end, we are small spots in the earth, as small as the holes in the desert of Kuwait in 1991, photographed by Sophie Ristelhueber, an expert capturing the effects of the war.
To end this article I would like to mention the Spanish Civil War representation in Conflict time, by Lud Delahaye. He photographed,70 years after the war, the forensic exhumation of a mass grave containing the bodies of executed Republican prisoners (Malaga,2009).
Although, sometimes we can feel hopeless about the conflict, I wouldn’t say conflict is bad, war is bad. I disagree with the exhibition name. Conflict is a chance to change things, the main point to solve a conflict is the way you use to do it. War is terrible, deaths are unforgivable and that is why governments should keep always a good MEMORY of what happened, what happens and what could happen.
