New York 9/11 – War in Times of Peace
The path through the exhibition offers a chronological journey through the past 20 years, all the way back to 11th September 2001. Five installations start by visualising the less visible consequences of that fateful day: the suffering caused in war-torn countries in the Middle East, the huge follow-up costs of the war on terror, the fates of the refugees and witnesses, the nameless victims of torture, the hostilities and the persecution which were all a direct consequence of 9/11. At the end of the chronology, the NEW YORK 9/11 panorama shows the scene at the World Trade Center on the morning of 11th September 2001 at 08:41, five minutes before the attacks took place.
