Happening: WHITE FLAG International Day, 18 octombrie 2008
22 September 2008
International Day of the White Flag
October 18th 2008

On the 18th of October 1988, the artist Johannes Cladders hoisted a white flag on the demarcation line between Eastern and Western Jerusalem.

In respect of this unique action, 20 years later, on the 18th of October 2008, Akademie Schloss Solitude will launch the `International Day of the White Flag: We are inviting people from all over the world to hang a white flag, a symbolic language which can be understood by everyone, from their house or window on this day.
Finally, the Akademie Schloss Solitude will also hoist a white flag on the 18th of October 2008 on the cupola of the baroque castle Solitude in Stuttgart.
  • Johannes Cladders describes the white flag: `It consists of a piece of fabric or of any other comparable material. Its dimension and shape can be objectively described. Beside the white color it doesn’t contain any further information. For this reason it is open to any art of individual and corporative interpretation: From the symbolic of the color to the endless meanings in the context of politics, war and peace, religion, philosophy, sciences, moral, history of culture and art. The white flag means freedom. Who is hoisting it on the 18th of October gives a sign for it`
