Legendary multimedia artist and peace activist Yoko Ono will take part in the 5th edition of Biennial of Contemporary Art D-0 ARK Underground.
Her video ‘Imagine Peace Tower’ will be included in the D-0 ARK collection, widely regarded as one of the most important global collections of contemporary art dedicated to Cold War era.
Criticized in the past, Yoko Ono’s art is now considered high art and many find her projects of conceptual art to be revolutionary.
Representatives of the D-0 ARK Underground Project have successfully completed months-long negotiations with the artist, who gave them permission to put documentary feature about preparations for production and post-production of her work of art ‘Imagine Peace Tower’ on display in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Imagine Peace Tower is a memorial to Yoko Ono’s late husband John Lennon, located near Reykjavík, Iceland. It consists of a tall tower of light, projected from a white stone monument that has the words ‘Imagine Peace’ carved into it in 24 languages. These words, and the name of the tower, are a reference to Lennon’s campaign for peace, and his song ‘Imagine’.
Army War Command ARK D-0, also known as the Atomic War Command and nicknamed ‘Tito’s bunker’ after former Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito, is a Cold War era nuclear bunker and military command center located near the town of Konjic in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Project D-0 ARK Underground was recognized over the past ten years as a promoter of regional cultural values, and was proclaimed by the Council of Europe as the Cultural Event of Europe in 2011.
