View Film

The Perpetual Peace Project includes a series of public initiatives that stage dialogues about possibilities for international peace.

These consist of an international symposium at the International Peace Institute and the United Nations, an installation at the New Museum, and a feature film, each of which feature conversations with renowned philosophers and practitioners reflecting on Immanuel Kant's foundational essay Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch (1795) with reference to 21st century international priorities and geopolitical conflicts. These initiatives not only expand upon the original text, but also enable the Perpetual Peace Project itself to research and reflect on its own goals.
