PEACE AND ART//Public talk with father of piece studies Johan Galtung

Public talk about piece and the arts with Professor and "Father of piece studies" Professor Johan Galtung and me at dokkhuset In trondheim 13th june 2012

I wrote a piano concerto based on the book "Transcend and transform" by Galtung. A study on conflict solutions. I got so impressed and inspired musically by this so i wrote piece. This also changed something in my view of life as an artist. I have allways been very poltical engaged, but was never active in organiztion life but i suddenly realized that just as music and engagement in culture in a sense is political, an intellectual understanding of piece studies and conflict solution has many similarities. Johan Galtung is equally interested in the arts and we have an ongoing collaboration that will result in more music and public talks like this one.
